Among the most prominent French at the start of the season are Téji Savanier and Allan Saint-Maximin. Two Blues in power?
Still to his advantage this Sunday with Montpellier, Téji Savanier is undoubtedly one of the most interesting Ligue 1 players at the start of the season. The rise of the former Nîmes is such that some willingly send him to the France team. A little music which begins to make its way in the mind of the principal concerned.
« Do I believe in my chances of being selected? No, there are some very good players in the team. But it would be a dream to be called. It stays in a corner of my head, admits Pailladin in an interview with RMC. There are players who play in big European clubs, they play the Champions League or the Europa League. It’s easier for them. I focus on my club. If it’s ever to happen, it will. But it’s not an obsession in my head, otherwise I’m going to hit the wall. »
Saint-Maximin: “I think I have the level”
Another maddening wisp since the start of this 2021-2022 exercise under the colors of Newcastle, Allan Saint-Maximin also keeps a close eye on the selections of Didier Deschamps. ” You watch, you wait and when you are not called there is obviously disappointment. But that’s what makes you wanna keep working “, He admits in a report soon to be broadcast on RMC Sport.
And the former Nice, passed by the teams of young people and the Espoirs tricolores, to trumpet: ” It’s a certainty, I think I have the level. I think there are a lot of good players but as you can see, a lot of players have had their chance. This means that Jonathan Ikoné had his chance, Moussa Diaby had his chance. Marcus Thuram had his chance. Quite a few players were lucky enough to be called up. I do not think that I am not at the level so as not to be called up for the France team. The next list – to face Kazakhstan and Finland in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers – is expected on Thursday, November 4.
