The succession of Corinne Deacon at the head of the Blue is looming. Hervé Renard should be the lucky one, accompanied by the former assistant of the landed coach.
Thierry Henry said no. Jocelyn Gourvennec said no. But the French Football Federation is not without solutions. At this time, the premium choice of interim president Philippe Diallo remains a plausible option. And even better if we are to believe L’Equipe, which on Saturday judges Hervé Renard “more than ever close to becoming Corinne Deacon’s successor at the head of Les Bleues”.
While waiting for the current coach of Saudi Arabia to free himself from his Middle Eastern obligations, the FFF is already working on the contours of the future tricolor staff. With in sight an assistant a priori validated by Renard: a certain Eric Blahic, who is none other than the former right arm of Corinne Deacon. The current coach of the France under-twenty team, Sonia Haziraj, is also expected to join the technical unit.
A relative of Le Graët
As for Blahic, his possible return to the Blues would probably not be without touching the newly arrived coach. The latter, placed by Noël Le Graët at the start of 2020, having barely lasted a year and a half alongside Deacon at the time, left prematurely due to an incompatibility of mood with the boss then that he got along perfectly well with the players.
