Deschamps could be fired if eliminated against Belgium

If the France team is eliminated in the round of 16 of Euro 2024, Deschamps' future could be called into question.

Officially, Didier Deschamps is under contract until the 2026 World Cup, or two more years after Euro 2024. But in the event of another failure at the Euro, the coach's future could be quickly called into question by the president of the FFF, who is also aiming for his re-selection. Especially since the extension of his contract after the World Cup by Noël Le Graeuml;t had caused controversy and a certain Zinedine Zidane is still interested in this position.

According to L'Equipe, “if” he reaches the last four, Deschamps will have peace until 2026. In the quarter-finals, the debate will be open, but it will be less tense. In the event of elimination tonight, on the other hand, his presence at the 2026 World Cup will be called into question. Nothing new: it's the job that wants to “agree to it” explains the newspaper.

Questioned by Le Figaro a few weeks ago, Philippe Diallo, president of the FFF, nevertheless indicated that Didier Deschamps' contract would not be called into question even if the objective of the semi-final is not achieved. “No, there is no question. I am not going to prejudge this or that situation. Today, the idea is to be mobilized to put the team, Didier and the players in the best conditions so that they can fully express their talent. We are one of the favorite teams. We must not put any grain of sand that could jam this machine, which is a winning machine.”
