In a few days, Didier Deschamps will announce his first list since the lost final of the 2022 World Cup against Argentina last December. And a few surprises are to be expected, especially at right-back, where no one has yet won, Jules Koundé and Benjamin Pavard were particularly convincing in Qatar. So Pierre Kalulu could have something to play for and does not hide his ambitions.
“I’ve been in front of my TV watching the lists since I was little. It’s been a while already. I will necessarily be a little more careful this time. I was lucky that the public discovered me as a central defender in Milan, but I played as a full-back during my training. This position suits me quite well, ”says the AC Milan defender, guest of L’Equipe de Greg.
The player also took the opportunity to discuss the influence of Théo Hernandez and Olivier Giroud who play with him at the club.
“The French internationals of Milan encourage me to show myself to the maximum and to do everything to join them. They tell me to hang on. The lobbying does not work too well, in the end the decision is up to the coach, ”added Pierre Kalulu.
