After the release of Patrice Evra in the TV program « Telefoot » on the French private channel TF1, the newspaper Libération says this case was premeditated.
Having investigated the affair, the daily reveals that it arranges people in the French federation. Indeed, the Manchester’s player, Patrice Evra is weakening the position of the French coach Didier Deschamps.
According to the newspaper, the French federation is already preparing the coach’s possible dismissal in case of defeat against Romania in playoff for the World Cup. A member of the French federation has viewed the report in which Evra criticized the journalists before it was broadcast and he gave his approval. Zinedine Zidane is supposed to replace Deschamps in the post of coach.
Three years after Knysna’s affair, the French team is still in a complicated situation because Patrice Evra was not sanctioned by the FFF.
The French coach is in the unstable position since Evra is his essential player. Indeed, it was Didier Deschamps to call on the Manchester’s player for the playoff.
