France head coach Didier Deschamps has revealed his delight after guiding the nation to their second World Cup title. Les Bleus started the tournament as one among the favourites for the global crown and they duly delivered after they secured a comfortable 4-2 triumph in Sunday’s final at the Luzhniki Stadium.
With the result, Deschamps became only the third person to win the World Cup as both a player and a manager and he was ecstatic to have achieved the feat. Speaking to reporters, he said: “Professionally there’s nothing above that. Maybe they’re going to win other titles and I don’t want to undermine other titles, but when you are a professional footballer there’s nothing above that.
