Didier Deschamps, the coach of the France team, who is preparing to play the Euro, mentioned the case of Aymeric Laporte during an interview with several regional media. The central defender of Manchester City, who does not have a selection with the Blues, finally opted for Spain, after having been naturalized recently.
“He has that freedom, as long as he hasn’t played with us. He could not have had it, ten seconds with the Blues would have been enough … He has always been in the pre-lists, but there was also competition ”, justified Deschamps.
“There is no mess, it’s his choice. It’s part of his freedom ”
Didier Deschamps, about Aymeric Laporte who chose to play for Spain.
If he seems to understand the choice of Laporte, Deschamps still has a criticism to make him: “I do not take a player to prevent him from having a second choice, continued the boss of the Blues. I wasn’t going to block it. Afterwards, what bothers me is what he can say and which is a lie (Laporte said he sent a message to Didier Deschamps but still had no response). The only message I got from him, dates from October for a specific situation where he was injured in September, he was no longer on the pre-lists. He was in the months of November, March, and that too. There is no mess, it is his choice. I wish him a safe journey. It’s part of his freedom. “
