Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Kalidou Koulibaly’s “Little Brother” interview!
She is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world. However, the OL midfielder Amandine Henry is not selected by Corinne Deacon to compete in the Women’s Euro. A big disappointment that she inevitably digests with difficulty in the columns of the Team, especially since Corinne Deacon presented him as a sporting choice.
“I think I was successful, I’m not there. So. My performance was not high enough to be there. I will try to do better next season. A sporting choice? That’s what she (Corinne Deacon) says. If she says it, I believe her. Heard it was just the one day performance (Champions League final). With OL, we have been champions of France and champions of Europe for fifteen years. I don’t think this is a one-day performance. Afterwards, that’s what she says. I take note of what she says. It just doesn’t match, that’s all. »
Subsequently, Amandine Henry returns to a relationship with the coach that simply does not exist. Since 2020 and a speech where she had expressed the discomfort of the group with Deacon.
“Since the phone call (in November 2020 to announce his non-selection) which lasted 10 seconds, I have had no further news. (…) It’s not our relationship, it’s the relationship between her and the team. If I spoke, it was not in my name, but in the name of the team. Per se, I had no problem with her, it was the team that had a problem. Afterwards it’s easy to say that there is a problem between her and me when there was not. To hear the echoes of the other players, today, she has changed. I tell myself that, perhaps, the fact of having said things, that could have made progress. I have no problem with her. »
An Amandine Henry who is now trying to stay positive and who ensures that she will not give up a future in the France team.
” No way. As long as I play football, I will believe in the France team. It is above everything. With Deacon? Yes why not. I will always be a player available for the France team, whether it’s Corinne Deacon or someone else in post. »
