Didier Deschamps Favourite to Become New Juve Manager

Recommended Posts

Deschamps new Juve favourite

France boss Didier Deschamps has emerged as the new favourite to succeed Max Allegri at Juventus.

According to Tuttosport, Deschamps would like to complete the work he left unfinished in 2007.

The 50-year-old led Juve back into Serie A following the Calciopoli scandal but resigned after disagreements with the club’s board.

Furthermore, he would fit into the Bianconeri’s budget and already has their ‘blessing’.

Deschamps played 173 times for the Old Lady between 1994 and 1999, lifting three Scudetti and a Champions League.

He has also won Ligue 1 titles as a Coach with Monaco and Olympique Marseille, as well as the World Cup last year.

The report comes just a day before Allegri will meet Juve President Andrea Agnelli for talks about his future.

Back again? Don't see it as a good option for him. Should stay with France where he is doing very well.

Didier Deschamps: France coach's contract extended to 2022 World Cup


       Didier Deschamps coached France to World Cup victory in 2018

World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps has extended his France contract until the end of the 2022 tournament in Qatar.

Deschamps took over in 2012 and led France to the Euro 2016 final before their victory at the 2018 World Cup.

The extension means the 51-year-old will become France's longest-serving coach, surpassing Michel Hidalgo's eight years and six months in charge.

French football president Noel Le Graet called it "logical decision".

Le Graet previously said Deschamps' contract would be extended if France qualified for the 2020 European Championships.

Les Bleus achieved that goal in November and have been drawn in a group with 2014 world champions Germany, reigning European champions Portugal and an as yet unknown team who will qualify through the play-offs.

Deschamps, who was captain when France became world champions in 1998, previously had a contract that was due to expire after Euro 2020.
