Point of the finger by Aymeric Laporte last March, Didier Deschamps returned to the case of the French central defender, who decided to change sporting nationality to play with Spain.
Laporte has decided not to play for France anymore
Aymeric Laporte has lost patience. Frustrated by his situation in the French team, with which he did not have the slightest selection despite three summons, the 27-year-old central defender finally decided to opt for the Spanish team. The Manchester City player has therefore recently changed sporting nationality in order to be able to play the Euro with La Roja.
Laporte victim of concurrence
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 competition too , Didier Deschamps justified himself in an interview with several regional media.
Never really convinced by the Citizen, whose attitude was not unanimous within the France group, the tricolor selector seems to understand his choice. On the other hand, the boss of the Blues is not ready to let everything go. Deschamps held on to a spade thrown last March by the former Athletic Bilbao player.
Deschamps tells a lie
In an interview with beIN Sports, the native of Agen had denounced the attitude of the selector, explaining that the latter had not responded to his messages. Words that strongly annoyed DD. Then the tricolor technician replies! What bothers me is what he can say and which is a lie , launched the former Marseille coach, before giving his version of the facts.
The only message I got from him, dated October for a specific situation where he was injured in September, he was no longer on the pre-lists, explains Deschamps. He was in those of November, March and in this one too. There is no mess, it’s his choice. I wish him a safe journey. A route that he could cross again during the next Euro.
