Didier Deschamps returned at length to the case of Eduardo Camavinga in an interview published Wednesday in L’Équipe. The coach confirmed the “frustration” of the French.
This season, Eduardo Camavinga has broken through at Real Madrid. But not necessarily where expected. And maybe neither does he. Repositioned by Carlo Ancelotti in a left-back role, the tricolor international revealed himself there and finally became a holder of this position at Real Madrid. So much so that in the France team, Didier Deschamps also tried the experience during the 2022 World Cup. However, Eduardo Camavinga continues to prefer when he plays in midfield, his favorite position. What sometimes frustrate him.
The national coach also confirmed this during an interview with The Team. When asked about what he intended to do in the future regarding the placement of Eduardo Camavinga with the Blues, Didier Deschamps focused his answer on the player’s feelings. ” He is not refractory, but there is a frustration in him, I know, in a position where the races are long and less diversified. In his head, he will prefer to establish himself in midfield, where he is very good, but he is also very good as a side. He gives solutions to his coaches and his coach. »
An answer that does not necessarily suggest a huge change, at least in the immediate future, on the use of “Cama” in the France team. The versatility of the former Stade Rennais player therefore remains a double-edged sword for him and his frustration could therefore continue a little longer, even if Didier Deschamps did not hesitate to play him in midfield last March against Ireland (1-0).
