French team – Edf: Rabiot and his mother, Deschamps forgives everything

Called to the rescue after the packages of N’Golo Kanté and Corentin Tolisso, Adrien Rabiot has found the France team. Exit the controversies following the behavior of his mother during Switzerland-France during the Euro.

His last appearance in the France team dates back to the infamous elimination of the Blues on penalties against Switzerland during the Euro, Adrien Rabiot had not been recalled by Didier Deschamps for the qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup this September . Some thought that the Juventus midfielder could pay there for the attitude of his mother in the stands of the stadium in Bucharest. After the elimination of France, some journalists had reported the heat stroke experienced in an area reserved for the families of the players, Véronique Rabiot having had little courteous exchanges with the entourage of Mbappé and Pogba. And therefore the absence of Adrien Rabiot in the initial list of the Blues could give way to speculation.

Rabiot was not sanctioned by the France team

However, after the announcement of the summons of the Juventus player following the packages of Corentin Tolisso and N’Golo Kanté, Didier Deschamps explained why he had initially deprived himself of Adrien Rabiot: “ I had spoken with Adrien before the initial list. He hadn’t played a minute for three weeks with Juventus. He was not expected to play last weekend. If I had known it would have been on my first list. For the national coach, this answer allows to evacuate in delicacy a question on a possible sanction of the player following the behavior of his mother, even if during the Euro Adrien Rabiot had an exemplary behavior on and off the field. There is therefore no problem Rabiot in the France team, and Didier Deschamps wants to let everyone know before the match against Ukraine.
