Didier Deschamps assures him, France 98 gets along wonderfully. However, the current coach of the Blues would have left the Whatsapp group created by the world champions. As Robert Pirès suggested, the group is not complete. It must be said that Deschamps no longer speaks to some, like Christophe Dugarry.
« We have Bobo (Boghossian), Barthez, Leboeuf, Thuram, Liza (Lizarazu), Blanc, Desailly, Pires, Zidane… We’re not bad. There is Diomède, there is Charbo (Charbonnier), Karembeu… If Deschamps is in the group? No, there is no DD. I think he blocked his account “. Columnist on RMC, Christophe Dugary hinted that Didier Deschamps distanced himself from France 98. However, to hear, the coach of the Bluesall is well in the best of all possible worlds.
“France 98 is going well” according to Deschamps
« We don’t touch France 98! France 98 is a collective that has made it possible to unite, to bring together an entire country. Don’t count on me to turn it into a dividing machine, especially since it doesn’t correspond to reality. Some take part in the gatherings when there are some, others don’t and that should only concern us. Some are brought to express themselves in the media, others are withdrawn. But I meet and exchange with most players of this generation. France 98 is fine » had announced Deschamps au Parisian.
Pires evokes unease
But during a documentary aired on Canal +, Robert Pires put a coin back in the machine. During a discussion with the former biathlete Martin Fourcade, former playerArsenal spoke of discomfort with Didier Deschamps. « If I kept in touch with my former teammates? Yeah, for example, on France 98, we have a WhatsApp group. Well, I’ll be honest with you, not everyone is there. The names ? Anyway it’s already known in the press, it’s like that ” dropped Pires, thus confirming the tensions within the world champion group in 1998.
