OL: Lacazette removed from the Blues, Deschamps finally explains himself – Olympique Lyonnais

Absent from Didier Deschamps’ plans for more than six years, Alexandre Lacazette has lost all hope of returning to the French team. The Blues coach has definitely turned the page and finally given an explanation.

In another context, Alexandre Lacazette could have claimed a summons for this gathering. The attacker of Olympique Lyonnais had a convincing season. And the Groupama Stadium, which will host the friendly match between the France team and Germany on Saturday evening, would surely have been delighted to applaud him. However, since his famous double against the Germans (2-2) in November 2017, Alexandre Lacazette has suddenly disappeared from Didier Deschamps’ plans.

A choice that is still difficult to accept for the former Arsenal player. “ A taste of unfinished business with the France team? Yes, there is that taste. I had this taste for a long time: regrets, disappointment, sadnessthe Lyonnais recently confided to Ligue 1 broadcaster Prime Video. But now it’s over. I understood a lot of things and now there is a new generation, it’s up to them to make France vibrate. It’s a shame that I couldn’t do it when I was in the selection but it allowed me to do other things. »

Lacazette victim of competition

If the center forward with 16 caps digested his sidelining so badly, it is also because Didier Deschamps never really explained his decision. The Blues coach therefore took advantage of an interview with Le Progrès to give his version. “ Lacazette is frequently on pre-lists, but other players have taken overexplained the technician to the regional daily. It’s not a question of age, since Giroud is still there. (…) What happened in the France team is a question of competition. » Credible or not, everyone will have their own opinion.
