If Jonathan Ikoné (LOSC) made his appearance in the list of Blues, for the first time, some players were left behind, like Steve Mandanda (OM) or Samuel Umtiti (FC Barcelona).
"It is not a question of too early or too late. I know what Steve (Mandanda) can do, I'm happy to see him again at this level. And also to a physic of this level. Steve remains Steve, but I do not know what the situation will be. I must also project myself in a year (for Euro 2020, ed). I'm lucky to have some great goalies, and Steve is one of them. I am always attentive, as I said, on the match yesterday (Nice 1-2 OM, ed) and the matches before"revealed Didier Deschamps.Regarding the central defender Barça, the former coach of the OM also gave his opinion: "I do not forget what Samuel Umtiti can bring and gave to this team. (…) It's a hard decision, I make sure to be logical about what I think. I'm happy with one but not the other, it's like that. (…) It is necessary to put a little oxygen from time to time, and to regenerate (the group)."
