France: update on Pogba, word to the absent ... Deschamps distributes his messages

Didier Deschamps was licensed with Paul Pogba.

Lucas Hernandez, Presnel Kimpembe, Paul Pogba, Ngolo Kant, Kingsley Coman or even Karim Benzema. To compose his group this Thursday he will face Austria (September 22) and Denmark (September 25) in the League of Nations (see the article here), France coach Didier Deschamps had to adapt with a cascade of packages.

For this last list before that of the 2022 World Cup, therefore, it was not really good for the other players to remain on the ground.

A specific message for Pogba

Obviously, the absence of Pogba, who had recently operated on his knee, was expected. But in this press conference the boss of the Blues still sent an important message to the Juventus Turin midfielder. In the blur with respect to the recovery of the tricolor star, Deschamps awaits guarantees before the World Cup. It is impossible to say anything. Can you tell if the surgery and its protocol went well? Yes. There is a delay with a more or less short or long range. I know Paul very well, with whom I speak regularly. He will do everything to return as soon as possible, but without taking any risks. I say it sincerely, no one, not even him, even me, can say anythingtempered the former Olympique de Marseille manager before being clear on the criteria for Pogba’s return for this tournament.

Before even talking about the second criterion, which can be his athletic condition and his playing time, he must already be healed. For a final tournament, I never picked up a player if he didn’t fully recover. Paul has enough respect for himself, he’s not a GO he’s not going to come and entertain the gallery. If he is healed, in what physical conditions? This is the question mark. Physically fit even without having played for Juve? No. If he has to come … He doesn’t want any either. It is not conceivable, He insisted. Suffice it to say that to apply for a place in the France group in Qatar, Pogba will also need to have rhythm.

The big losers can still believe it …

If the Pioche, in good health, has the cards in hand to return to the Blues, other players stand out as the big losers of the day. Present last June and physically fit, Lucas Digne, Boubacar Kamara, Moussa Diaby and Wissam Ben Yedder were not selected. Instead, Deschamps recalled Ferland Mendy, Eduardo Camavinga, and Ousmane Dembl, while also bringing in newcomers like Youssouf Fofana and Randal Kolo Muani.

On top of a question about the Mongasco, DD had a word for the absent. He hasn’t been experiencing his best period for a few weeks, for what he can do on the pitch and his playing time, he has been called up regularly with us. I also have the opportunity to see other players with us to get answers on my choices in November. For the players who came, Wissam, Lucas or Moussa, it is not because they are not here today that they cannot come latersaid the boss of the 2018 world champions. Time is running out, there are only 66 days to go until the World Cup …
