He had warned that he would not be present at all the French team's press conferences. To avoid taking all the spotlight and leave room for others, notably Antoine Griezmann, the vice-captain. This will be the case this Wednesday at 4 p.m. during the pre-France-Ireland media meeting at the Parc des Princes. Didier Deschamps will be accompanied by the Atlético de Madrid international. And not from the Parisian. Situation already seen in June during the last international sequence.
Inevitably, his absence will be noticed. And will raise some questions. In the soap opera on his showdown with Paris SG, he has not spoken publicly since June 15 in Faro. The summer has passed and if he has returned to the professional group of the champions of France, questions remain as to his future. They would have been asked this Wednesday, but the media caravan will remain without an official response. It remains to be seen whether he will also be absent from a press conference on Monday in Dortmund on the eve of challenging Germany in a friendly.
