This is the soap opera of the moment. While his contract expires in a few days, the future of Didier Deschamps is rather vague. A few weeks ago, everyone believed that his adventure in charge of the Blues would end at the end of this World Cup, regardless of the final result of the competition for France. But the situation has changed a lot, and among other things the former Chelsea and OM player clearly does not rule out the possibility of extending.
The trend would even be an extension according to the various information published in recent days. Yesterday, RMC Sport for example, we learned that DD was keen to resign, but on two conditions: a fairly long contract, while the Fed would “only” offer him two more years, and await the results of this internal review that the minister had initiated. of Sports, which targets Noël Le Graët in particular.
For its part, the daily The team reveals the underside of the current contract for the tricolor coach. In particular, we learn that he receives 2.5 million euros gross annually. A relatively low salary for a coach of a world power – it is much less than, for example, Hansi Flick or Gareth Southgate – to which we must add a few bonuses and bonuses, such as the €22,000 collected in each match in the form of compensation for his picture.
In case of good results from his team, he will also be rewarded and he will receive, for example, €290,000 after the very good course of EDF during this World Cup in Qatar. Note that the financial aspect does not really seem to be among the main points of discussion between the coach and the FFF, which leads us to believe that in the event of an extension, he will continue with fees similar to those he currently receives.
