France Boss Deschamps: ‘Many People’ Want Messi To Win World Cup
France manager Didier Deschamps says he is not bothered “many people” want Argentina and Lionel Messi to lift the World Cup.
Messi is looking to lead Argentina to success in Qatar 2022 in what could be his final appearance for La Albiceleste.
On his part, Deschamps is aiming to become the second manager to win successive World Cups after leading Les Blues to their second title in 2018
“We are trying to live with it, without going too far and getting carried away, but doing what is necessary,” he said.

Deschamps, who also captained France to victory in 1998, was asked whether his squad’s injuries, the virus and the “will for Messi to win” had left him feeling “alone in the world”.
“I often get that feeling,” he replied. “But I am fine being alone. That doesn’t bother me.
“I don’t have any particular worries or stress about the game. When you prepare for a game like this you need to keep your focus, remain composed, but, of course, in a World Cup final especially you have the match and the whole context behind that.
“Of course, the objective is to come out with the title.
“I know Argentina and many people around the world, and maybe some French people as well, would hope that Lionel Messi could win the World Cup, but we’re going to do everything to achieve our objective.”
