President of the FFF since 2011 and current candidate for a fourth term, Noël Le Graët would see Didier Deschamps succeed him in the future, as he explained this Saturday in an interview given to RTL.
Not yet reelected at the head of the French Football Federation, Noël Le Graët is already thinking about his successor. The 79-year-old Breton would see Marc Keller take over in four years. “It turns out that in the current team, it is likely that there will be a future president of the Federation. However, you have to be completely independent and it is not that easy. I am thinking of Marc Keller (53 years old) ), who is young and talented. Strasbourg should be sold or the club should be left, and it’s not that easy as you might think. When I had to leave Guingamp, there was a bit of a dying side -heart “, he indicated in an interview given this Saturday to RTL.
“He has pleasant contacts with our sponsors”
President of the FFF since 2011 and current candidate for a fourth term, Le Graët also has another name in mind for his succession: that of Didier Deschamps. “I think Didier would make a remarkable Federation president. First, the sporting qualities, you know them. He knows how to count and he has pleasant contacts with our sponsors, that counts, with all of you. That said, I don’t. not see saying after Qatar: ‘Come on, that interests me.’ I don’t think so, but I would have liked it, ”he added. Arrived at the helm of the France team in 2012 to replace Laurent Blanc, Deschamps will end his contract in 2022, after the World Cup in Qatar. And after ?
“We will discuss again if he wishes. The answer almost belongs to Didier, what does he want to do with his future? If he wants to go to a big club, he will find some. It is not someone who will be sure Can we find better today in the France team? If Didier stopped and I was still in place, the first person I would see is Zidane, “said Le Graët, currently opposed to Michel Moulin and Frédéric Thiriez for the presidency of the FFF. The election will take place on March 13.
