Deschamps hopes to continue as France coach beyond 2022

Deschamps, France Deschamps

Didier Deschamps suggested he is keen to continue as France coach beyond the expiration of his current deal, which runs out next year.

Deschamps has led France to the 2016 European Championship final and 2018 World Cup glory during his nine-year tenure as Les Bleus boss.

Indeed, he is only the third person —- along with Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer —- to have won the World Cup as both a player and a coach.

He will also make history if he guides France to success at Euro 2020 this year.

France going a step further than they managed on home soil in 2016 would be more feather to Deschamps’ cap.

He will be the first person to win both the Euros and the World Cup as a player and coach.
