Deschamps is raging against the schedules that are too busy for internationals. - FRANCK FIFE / AFP
This is not new, Didier Deschamps is very concerned about the calendar of the football season, which he considers more and more busy for his taste. In an interview with the German magazine Kicker , the coach of the France team went further. "The calendar is not only overloaded: at this rate, it will even burst," railed the 2018 world champion.
"The schedule is too busy, but I have little hope that the situation will evolve favorably," he continued, as resigned. The Club World Championship scheduled for China in 2021 with twenty-four teams proves that there are now too many games. "

For the former tricolor captain, all this is also and above all a matter of security. "I feel a lack of cohesion in football in general and we do not take enough care of the health of the players," he regrets. It is a problem facing every great nation. Even the young players bear less and less these hellish cadences, so they have to chain the matches at a frantic pace. "
