Corinne Deacon about to be thanked, a surprising candidate for the orders of the French women’s team appeared on Tuesday.
In two days, the commission appointed by Philippe Diallo to settle the question of a Corinne Deacon challenged by some of her players will deliver its verdict. Appointed by the interim president of the French Football Federation (FFF), Comex members Jean-Michel Aulas, Marc Keller, Aline Riera and Laura Georges will vote. Obviously for a dismissal of the current coach of the Blue, in place since 2017 and under federal contract for another 18 months.
By the presumed successors announced in the media, we find women’s football executives such as Sonia Bompastor, Sandrine Soubeyrand, Patrice Lair and Gérard Prêcheur. The latter, stationed at PSG, even appeared as the favorite, not hiding his appetite for such a role. And this despite the doubts inherent in his own contractual situation. This Tuesday, however, a dramatic turn of events! A fifth name has been added to the list. And not least…
A real electric shock
According to RMC, Hervé Renard would also be in the race, he who this fall in Qatar conquered his world at the head of Saudi Arabia – the only selection to have beaten the Argentine world champion on the way to triumph. If his Saudi lease runs until 2027, the 54-year-old technician can free himself of it as he pleases. And if he has no experience in the world of women’s football, his international experience pleads in his favor, with two African Cups of Nations won with Zambia (2012) and Côte d’Ivoire. (2015). The FFF could opt for such an explosive profile, anxious to cause a real shock within the France group, less than five months now from the World Cup (from July 20 to August 20 in Australia and New Zealand).
