Didier Deschamps: “Rabiot will Take the Position I Give Him.”


France national football team manager, Didier Deschamps is satisfied with the progress that Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot made in recent months, joking about the position in which he will play Rabiot in the next matches of France against Finland, Portugal and Sweden.

As Deschamps mentioned: “It’s very important because he did well on the pitch and is still doing well with his club. He had a long pause from football, but as I said before, he has always had technical qualities. However, he has improved a lot without the ball and also in tackling.”

France National coach also added: “He has confidence and you can see that.” Speaking about the upcoming matches, the manager joked: “He will take the position I give him. Good for him and for us.”

Deschamps has called a 26-man squad for the upcoming matches against Finland, Portugal and Sweden.
