Barcelona risk transfer ban over Antoine Griezmann pursuit

Zidane will definitely coach France claims Deschamps

Zidane will definitely coach France claims Deschamps

Their manager Didier Deschamps faces the challenge of fitting the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembélé, Kylian Mbappé and Paul Pogba into the same team, while not leaving N'golo Kanté with all the defensive duties.

But Pogba, who had a quiet game, was whistled by the home fans at the Allianz Riviera.

What we often forget about Pogba is that he chose to come to Old Trafford. It's not just for him, at one point we kept the ball and they whistled too.

Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba is an extremely polarizing figure, and those strong opinions aren't limited to fans of rivals and neutrals either. "Everyone represents the French team", he said.

"We're France, we are all France players, we're all fighting for our country and for the fans there and we produced a very good performance".

Diego Costa has been the latest of those to do so, while Diego Simeone rings the player practically daily while he's with France, to convince him to stay.




It's hard to know exactly how to view the career of Paul Pogba so far. We don't expect that from him, only that he rotates the ball and plays for the team, ' Griezmann said.

The France forward is hot property this summer but after being heavily linked with Manchester United previous year, it appears Barcelona could now be his destination.

"We're France, whether we go to Nice, Lyon or Saint-Etienne". We're all on the same boat, and we have to all stick together'.

France will face US in another warm-up match on 9 June before kicking off their World Cup campaign against Australia a week later.

Deschamps' side then take on Australia in their opening Group C game on June 16.
