By her position, it was she who triggered the squall that ended up carrying away Corinne Diacre. Wendie Renard had announced her withdrawal from the France team because she could no longer "endorse the current system far from the requirements required by the highest level". The head of the "system" landed last week, the captain of the Blues could think about a return, as she suggested in an interview on Europe 1 Monday night.

"It is the coach who will select me if I perform well with my club (...) But why not? " she said. The Lyonnaise, 142 caps, does not hide that playing in the next World Cup (July 20 - August 20) is "an ultimate dream" for her. "I'm a competitor at heart. I love this jersey and I want to do everything to win a title with it," added Wendie Renard.

Preacher in pole?

The FFF must decide quickly on the person who will take over the France team. The commission charged with studying the Deacon case must now hear the candidates and "make recommendations" to interim President Philippe Diallo, as stipulated by the Federation in a statement last week.

Four names emerge for the next generation, those of Gérard Prêcheur, Sonia Bompastor, Patrice Lair and Eric Blahic. The first would be the favorite, even if he is currently in post at PSG and the timing is far from ideal with the deadlines that await the Parisian club (semi-final of the Coupe de France then quarter-final of the Champions League by the end of March). According to Le Parisien, the leaders of PSG would not close the door to a possible departure of their coach, but it will require negotiations.
