Didier Deschamps quotes
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.
Lacazette is one of the players who could have made the squad.
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.
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.
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.
