Mbappé crowns Deschamps: “A Super Legend, let’s give him the missing trophy”

Vice world champion in Qatar, France will begin their journey to Euro 2024 on Monday by facing Ralf Rangnick’s Austria in the first match of the group stage. Kylian Mbappecaptain of Les Bleusis ready to conquer this title too, also because it is the only one missing Didier Deschamps. These are his words to Western France: “We talk about legends when referring to Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud. Here we are faced with the Super Legends.

He left his mark on the French team first as a player and then as a coach. It’s not the same as when I arrived; he has been able to evolve, maintaining his standards and his principles, because in my eyes every coach will die with his principles, it is the basis of this profession. The coach always gives the same importance to the group; he knows how to win, but I have the feeling that he has softened a little. Maybe it’s the age or the group is younger. He has adapted to this new generation.

Whatever happens, it has indelibly marked the French team. Now, if we want him to make history a little more, we have to do something this summer, given that he only needs the European Championship as a coach. At that point he will have won everything and we will do everything to make this happen. Whatever his future is, I congratulate him: hats off for everything he has achieved.”
