EdF: Guendouzi feels essential for Deschamps

Left on the substitute bench against Australia (4-1) on Tuesday, Mattéo Guendouzi is not worried about his playing time. The midfielder of the France team knows that coach Didier Deschamps will not be able to deprive himself of him.

While the absences of Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté could have opened the door for him, Mattéo Guendouzi is still not in Didier Deschamps’ eleven. For the entry into the running at the 2022 World Cup against Australia, the coach of the France team favored Adrien Rabiot and Aurélien Tchouaméni, replaced by the Monegasque Youssouf Fofana during the match. Nothing very reassuring for the middle of Olympique de Marseille. And yet, the player who passed through the Paris Saint-Germain training center remains calm.

“Deschamps will need me”

The coach knows he can use me in several positions in the midfield. He knows he will need me and I will answer presentannounced the Marseillais. We are all competitors so we all want to start the matches. But the common goal is to go as far as possible and win the World Cup. We first think of the collective before thinking of his person and everyone is on the same wavelength. We are a lot of midfielders. We are all ready. The coach will make his choices, they will have to be respected. »

The competition is indeed tough, especially if striker Antoine Griezmann continues to evolve as a torchbearer. ” He did well against Australia. He can play in several positions by his technical quality. Regardless of his position, he will help the team. He also makes very good tackles, he will be able to play 6 later! He will make even better matches afterwards. “, predicted Mattéo Guendouzi, who will not make the mistake of sharing his moods in the middle of the World Cup.
