Didier Deschamps quotes

Sep 03 2017 - Luxembourg

It is football. It makes sense. To have so many chances and not to score one, it's infuriating. We lacked a bit of accuracy. A number of little things were not sharp.feedback

Aug 28 2017

Players will remain here [during the international break]. [Can they] pass the medical examinations here? Yes, it's possible.feedback

Aug 24 2017

Ousmane has not been training for 15 days, he is waiting for a possible transfer, he is struggling with his club. I cannot take an inactive player. It is up to the players and their advisers to see what is best for the player. I spoke with him, he hoped it would happen more quickly. But even if he has not been involved in the last two matches of Monaco, he is active, he is training. He just did not have time for specific reasons that are internal to his club.feedback

Aug 24 2017

What's annoying is that he puts himself on the fringes. If it goes his way, it'll be less difficult to deal with. If he has to stay in Dortmund, it'll be less easy with his club and his team-mates.feedback

Aug 24 2017

It's a similar, but a little different situation. There's a lot of noise around him too. But even if he has not been involved in the last two matches of Monaco, he is active, he is training. He just did not have time for specific reasons that are internal to his club.feedback

Jun 13 2017

I regret the result [against Sweden] and what happened. I made choices, it was not all the same context as here - it was a qualifying match, here it is a friendly, a different team.feedback

Jun 13 2017

The players who have had time to play today have many qualities as well. We had less energy [against Sweden]. Today, we had more legs.feedback

Jun 13 2017

We ended up with 10 men, so credit to the players because it's a nice England team.feedback

Jun 12 2017

If he'd seen things differently, I might have changed my decision, but we both thought it was the best thing for him to do. It was clear.feedback

Jun 12 2017

We want him to go back on the pitch.feedback

Jun 12 2017

This game time is not an exact science. If one player doesn't play for three weeks he may lose rhythm, but sometimes it works well. What is important for me is that they come to the national team with trust and they need to be efficient on the pitch.feedback

Jun 12 2017

Then when he came to French selection he was maybe fresher than other players.feedback

Jun 12 2017

He shared the same opinion as I did. We wanted him to go back on the pitch and give it his best shot.feedback

Jun 12 2017

In the English championship, they have more financial means than France and it is not always good for us to see French players leaving for the Premier League as there is more money over there.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - World Cup

England won the Under-20 World Cup and also won the Toulon tournament, so it is clear they know how to train their young players because of the results.feedback

Jun 09 2017

We still have four games - 12 points to play for - and we are going to have to battle hard to reach our goal.feedback

Jun 09 2017

The match against Netherlands at Stade de France on August 31 was always going to be important. Now it will be even more so.feedback

Jun 09 2017

I am not going to condemn Hugo. A draw would not have been ideal but it was a good point. We could have kept Sweden behind us, but that is no longer the case. I would have preferred a different outcome, a positive one, that would have allowed us to stay in first place.feedback

Jun 09 2017

It is a catastrophic scenario. If we didn't win this game, we should have got a draw. With the result level, we should have slogged through to the end.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Manchester United

It is an important game for us and very important for Sweden because they are behind us in the standings. It is not decisive, there will be four matches afterwards. You could say it's a turning point if you wanted, which it is because they are our rivals in the standings. But I repeat, there will be four matches afterwards.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Manchester United

It will be a complicated match. We will have to use all of our commitment and determination.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Manchester United

Raphael is fine. On Tuesday he did an intermediate session after two days of celebration in Madrid.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Manchester United

I asked Kylian to manage himself. He is doing so well. On Monday he took part in two sessions. There is no worry on his side.feedback

Jun 07 2017

The squad is complete now, with Rafa. Well done, congratulations, he's a European champion for the third time.feedback

Jun 05 2017

I manage him like the other players. He will learn how to cope and manage training. But I prefer to calm him rather than shake him up.feedback

Jun 05 2017

There are criticisms that are exaggerated. I sometimes find them unfair. If you ask Olivier to take the ball and eliminate three opponents, that's not what he does. He continues to prove himself and will need to do so in the future. The only way to silence critics is to continue performing.feedback

Jun 05 2017

I talk about it with him, then there are things he can control: what he does on the pitch. After that, there are other elements that come into play. He knows what he can do. He knows I have confidence in him. I told him after the Paraguay match.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Champions League

He has shown with his club, in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, that he is performing and decisive. It can be the same with us.feedback

Jun 05 2017

It's fabulous. Nobody had done it. I'm very happy for him. He omits a lot of serenity, of tranquillity. He knows his players very well and they repay him on the pitch.feedback

May 03 2017

This is something very special because it's a young team.feedback

May 03 2017

I'm disappointed for the players. They have done very well during a long, long season.feedback

Apr 30 2017

1998 was without doubt not only the greatest honour of my career, but also my life.feedback

Apr 30 2017

I was never going to be a talented player like [Zinedine] Zidane, or [Alessandro] Del Piero. So, I compensated for that flaw by being extremely hard working, and helping my team in every way that I could.feedback

Apr 20 2017

His club coach expects more from him and so do I. It's up to him to rediscover his form.feedback

Mar 29 2017

The result would have been different without the video assistant referee because our first goal was eventually chalked off and Spain's second goal stood. It is the evolution of football and I think there will always be a debate around this.feedback

Mar 27 2017

He can play tomorrow, like the other ones. Olivier has not had a lot of minutes on the pitch, also because he had an injury. Even if he was in the side [at Arsenal], then the people were thinking that he was able to play, to begin the match. If you're on the bench and you don't come in because you're not 100 per cent, then only few people can be aware of it. But before the international break he played three games in a row. He knows that he's had a more difficult season.feedback

Mar 27 2017

But he proved on Saturday that he's still an efficient striker. He scores goals with us, but he also gives to the players around him to change the attacking dynamic. He has reacted well with his club, where he gives good performances. He has a running speed, he likes to dribble.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Luxembourg

He has to make the right choices but he is able to unbalance defences. This game against Luxembourg will give him confidence.feedback

Mar 27 2017

Yes, it did not go well the first time. He was perhaps a little inhibited.feedback

Mar 27 2017

It's a prestigious game. There are no points at stake, as you know, but playing Spain, which is a leading country, gives a particular scent - as well as the matches against Italy or England.feedback

Mar 27 2017

We often meet over the years, but it is a beautiful prospect and we are hoping that there is a beautiful show - especially from our side.feedback

Mar 26 2017

Thank you, but that is his merit and I will not take it off him. The position of striker is always a big responsibility - it attracts a lot of criticism. Sometimes it is unfair like before the Euro, when he responded. I discussed it with him at length. He realises that he is not having his best season. He was a bit bothered by injuries, but despite everything, he scores. I trusted him by putting him in because I know what he can do in this type of game. Good for him. We had good control, but in the first half-hour we missed a bit of speed in our play.feedback

Mar 26 2017

The pitch did not favour a fluid game, but we did what was necessary to create opportunities and score three goals. This is positive for our qualification, even if the road is still long.feedback

Mar 26 2017

It was a complicated game because of an opponent who defended well.feedback

Mar 25 2017

In the next squad, there are those who I will take and those who I will not pick but who deserve to be there.feedback

Mar 23 2017

Each time there's a horror like this, it affects us. We must be solid. The most important thing it to show that we're stronger than that, even if there are sad days.feedback

Mar 22 2017

If you ask me if he's of an international standard, I would say yes.feedback

Mar 21 2017

In his position, he's one of the best players in Europe and the world. I will not complain.feedback

Mar 21 2017

He's been with us a while. He didn't play all the matches either. It all depends on the system I choose. N'Golo was performing well with us. He was with Leicester. He's doing it this year in Chelsea. He will certainly win a second consecutive title in England. He is French. He's with us. Obviously he's an important player. He is very efficient in his position. On the top of that, he starts to score goals, it's perfect.feedback

Mar 20 2017

There is no reason why he could not start. The fact that it is his first time with the national team does not mean he cannot start. But we should not move too fast.feedback

Mar 20 2017

Kylian is putting in some great performances at the moment. He is scoring goals and is in excellent form. Seeing as he is still very young, he obviously still has room for improvement. But it is quite remarkable what he has been doing, how calm and mature he is. He got here with a big smile on his face. That I called him up does mean that he will play at some point, though. All the players who I called up should have the ambition to start.feedback

Mar 16 2017

I wish Kylian to have the same career as Thierry Henry. Titi was very mature as a youngster, but I think Kylian is also a mature player. Kylian has made the squad because he has shown over the past few months that he has the quality. Quality has no age. Everyone will ask if this is the right moment, but I am looking forward to seeing him with the group, he has a very specific skillset. Other youngsters have walked this path before him and I think this is the right moment for him.feedback

Mar 16 2017

What makes him such a strong player, apart from his ability, is the way he always remains calm. That is very rare for someone his age. He has been performing well, but I have to make some difficult choices. I can only tell him to keep going, even though I understand that he must be disappointed. But I have to make choices. We have a lot of attackers and I cannot include all of them.feedback

Mar 16 2017

Lacazette is one of the players who could have made the squad.feedback

Mar 07 2017

Olivier always had times where he has played a lot and sometimes he has played less. But when he plays he often scores; he is always there performing and being effective, for us and for Arsenal for that matter. Moreover, in these clubs there are matches every three to four days; what is annoying if someone doesn't play for over a month.feedback

Mar 06 2017

But even there, with little playing time, he is still effective. So I'm happy for him.feedback

Mar 06 2017

He's our best goalscorer, he continues to score and when he doesn't, someone next to him often scores. He responds even when he's had a difficult season with his club. But even there, with little playing time, he is still effective. So I'm happy for him. It's a good thing. Our forwards scored, it's very good. Now I know that we'll have a very different game against Sweden. As an opponent, they're ranked just beneath us. Getting a good or very good result there will put us in an even better position to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.feedback

Mar 06 2017

It's better to have played a match where we had confidence. The whole group was very focused on this match so that we could prepare as best as possible for the one that awaits us.feedback

Feb 06 2017

Kylian had a small problem on Wednesday. He felt a bit of discomfort to his thigh.feedback

Feb 06 2017

I will not take any risks with him.feedback

Jul 09 2016 - Portugal

There is a title at the end of it. You must not think of it, to focus too much on it. But you also need to stay true to what you are used to doing. What is ideal is to go into the game as relaxed as possible, at the same time focused on the match.feedback

Mar 03 2016 - UEFA

There is no chance of playing in front of empty stadia. The stadia will be full. I think that UEFA, the French state are doing everything to have a maximum of security. Today guaranteeing 100% security is impossible, but you must not be worried or afraid, the audience will come, the stadium will be full and it'll be the celebration of football despite the tragic events we went through in Paris.feedback

Nov 05 2015

As for Matthieu Valbuena, even if he is not at his best at the moment with Olympique Lyonais, you'll understand that currently he is not in the best psychological condition because of this affair so I took the decision to give him a little break from the two very important matches which are coming up.feedback
