Zapping Eleven Mondial EXCLUDED: Steve Mandanda’s “Little Brother” interview!
The news was a little expected, but still remained a surprise when Didier Deschamps unveiled his list for the next gathering of the Blues. Olivier Giroud, taulier for years, second top scorer in the history of the France team and above all a new AC Milan player with whom he is finding playing time, was not selected.
Deschamps did not like Giroud’s criticism at all
A decision which did not fail to raise debate especially as Didier Deschamps used the argument of “sporting choice” not very defensible given the context. In fact, it seems the problem is elsewhere. The former Chelsea striker seems especially to pay his gap during the preparation of the Euro, where he had publicly criticized his partners, including Kylian Mbappé, as explained by the Team.
“Giroud also pays for the shady episode at Clairefontaine at the start of preparation with Kylian Mbappé. When in our columns, Deschamps explains – “That, he knows it, I told him: he didn’t have to say that, it’s a certainty” – he is in the euphemism. The coach of the Blues has not tasted at all this episode, which weighed down the Blues for 72 hours, “writes the daily in its edition of the day.
Didier Deschamps chose not to summon Olivier Giroud in his list of the France team. A choice that caused debate. But this decision seems to be due to Giroud’s behavior at the Euro which has not passed to the coach.
