World champion in 2018, European vice-champion in 2016, the return of Karim Benzema, a world-class striker in the person of Kylian Mbappé, a Ngolo Kanté who splashed the final of the Champions League with his talent: France is THE big favorite to win Euro 2020, according to our consultants to whom we asked the question in our pages of our edition this Friday.
But for Rolland Courbis, columnist on RMC Sports and present on the set of the Super Moscato Show, the Blues are too confident as the tournament approaches. He castigates the arrogance of the players of the France team in their comments made at a press conference since the start of the rally: “They don’t even realize it. And if we don’t watch out, we will lose this Euro before we even start it. With this arrogance, France is going to alienate everyone, we are going to make everyone hate it “, began Courbis.
“The players do not realize the statements they are making”, continues the consultant who also points to the excess of confidence among the media of France, “We think that Mbappé could be Ballon d’Or, that so-and-so could be a Silver or Diamond Shoe. Mbappé, Kanté, … Ballons d’Or. I say why not but let’s keep it to ourselves. I’m surprised. Maybe it’s me but I take it as complacency. “
And the former coach of Marseille, Montpellier or Rennes to continue: “I am not playing teacher and giving lessons. If I see the France team dominate its subject and finish European champion, I will be the first to applaud but I do not see it like that”, he asserts, “I hope I am wrong, as they say in these cases, but I can not be wrong too. I am afraid of one thing: it is that we alienate all the adversaries, that is is that we alienate the public. We must realize that we are not playing a home game but we face Germany at home and Hungary at home. We will play the last game against Portugal in Hungary without know who the Hungarian audience will be for. I’m afraid we will be jealous and hated. “
And to the question of the journalist from RMC Sport to know what he would recommend instead of Didier Deschamps, Rolland Courbis drew: “Let us shut up!”
