Deschamps' position not in doubt despite France's Euro 2024 exit


Philippe Diallo, the president of the French Football Federation, says there is "no reason" to question Didier Deschamps' future as the head coach of the national team.

France were knocked out of Euro 2024 at the semi-final stage by Spain on Tuesday after a 2-1 defeat.

Les Blues' performances underwhelmed throughout the tournament, with Randal Kolo Muani's strike against Spain their only goal from open play at the tournament.

But speaking to L'Equipe, Diallo said: "I don’t see any reason to question his contract. Past results speak in his favour and the objectives have been achieved. Didier will continue his mission.

"We’re going to be talking to each other over the next few days to analyse in greater depth what we lacked during this semi-final and what would have enabled us to go further.

"During this month, I’ve seen a lot of professionalism and a quest for excellence. We need to keep the French team moving in this direction."
