Didier Deschamps Extends His Contract With France


Didier Deschamps will likely lead France to the 2026 FIFA World Cup which will be co-hosted by the United States, Mexico, and Canada as he has agreed to extend his contract with the country.

On Saturday, the France Football Federation (FFF) confirmed that Didier Deschamps has agreed to remain France’s coach until June 2026.

Recall that Deschamps guided France to both the 2018 FIFA World Cup win and the 2022 World Cup final in Qatar, where they were defeated by Argentina.

France has also advanced to the 2014 World Cup quarterfinals and 2016 Euro final since the 54-year-old former Chelsea midfielder became the head coach of the country in 2012.

Of his 139 matches as manager, Deschamps has won 89, drawn 28, and lost 22.

Guy Stephan, the team’s assistant coach, Franck Raviot, the goalkeeping coach, and Cyril Moine, the physical trainer, are all expected to stay on with the national team, according to the FFF.

France won the Nations League in 2021 with the assistance of Deschamps, who had won the World Cup in 1998 while a player.

His most current agreement, which was signed in December 2019, covered him through the end of the 2022 World Cup.
