France women’s national coach sacked after ‘rebellion’ by key players

The French Football Federation has sacked the women’s national team coach Corinne Diacker. It happened after there had been unrest around the team for some time, especially among the top players. They have already expressed their displeasure with Diagri.

For example, captain Wendy Renard (Olympic Lyon) announced last week that she does not want to play for the national team. According to French media, it is related to Diacre. The same applies to PSG attackers Kadidiatou Diani and Marie-Antoinette Katoto, so that the association had to choose the national coach and the most important French players.

The French federation has long been reluctant to make a decision, but now recognizes that the problems have become ‘irreversible’. That is why it has been decided to say goodbye to Diakar. Dyker, 48, started as national coach in 2017 and has a contract until next year’s Olympic Games in Paris.

‘smear campaign’
Earlier this week he said he was not thinking about leaving and that he was part of a “smear campaign”. From 2007 to 2013, Diagre was already an assistant in the French women’s team, for which she scored 14 times in 121 international matches between 1993 and 2005.

The association’s decision has been taken four months before the World Cup to be held in Australia and New Zealand.
