WORLD CUP – France – Tunisia (0-1) | Did Deschamps lose Pavard? “He is not happy with this situation”

Logic would have wanted Benjamin Pavard to start the match against Tunisia. Since Didier Deschamps had decided to launch all his doubles and Pavard is now that of Jules Koundé, the Munich player had every chance of appearing in the eleven. But Didier Deschamps preferred to establish Axel Disasi, a pure central defender who had never played a single minute of play with the Blues.

From then on, a real mystery surrounds Pavard. Asked about the subject, the coach explained: “I made the decision not to play him. I had several exchanges with him, I consider that he is not in good conditionssaid Deschamps. You will say to me: ‘is it physical, is it the head?’. Obviously, the first match did not help him. That’s why I made a different choice.“The words are harsh when the coach is not used to targeting individual responsibilities so precisely.

I don’t want to blame him

After Pavard’s failed performance against Australia, where his responsibility is clear on the goal conceded, has Deschamps chosen to do without his defender for the rest of the competition? Why does he pillory him? All options are open. But Pavard does not seem to have let go, he who was the first to celebrate qualification in the Blues locker room on Sunday. “He is not happy with this situationcontinued Deschamps on TF1. I don’t want to blame him. The first match did not help to give him confidence.

The Northerner has never hidden that he wanted to settle in the axis in the France team. “Play in the axis with the selection, I’ve been waiting for this for a whilehe told us last June when the coach had publicly made him a central defender in March. When the coach changed the system, I took that as a good opportunity.“And if, from now on, playing on the right can weigh on him at Bayern Munich, this is not the case with the Blues. Pavard has always considered himself a soldier in the selection whatever position Didier Deschamps entrusts to him.

Koundé under suspension…

The coach’s clear words, which left the player in a form of incomprehension, leave little room for doubt now. Pavard has now dropped to third place among the Blues side and the problem could become central. Jules Koundé is not essential on the right and he is under threat of suspension after receiving a yellow card against Denmark. Can Axel Disasi decently become the first option when, already, on the left, Eduardo Camavinga appears to be a very fragile alternative? The Bayern player has not done well since the last Euro but he has the support of the executives (Lloris and Varane) and experience in the position.

Was Deschamps wrong? “He went too far”

For having built a list with only one specialist in the corridors in defense (Théo Hernandez), Didier Deschamps could tie a few knots in the head in the coming days. As for Benjamin Pavard, difficult, after the scathing observation of his coach, to imagine a destiny for him in this World Cup.
