    Women’s French team: “What I saw was abject”, the coach of Clermont in support of Deacon

    Abandoned by her players and her Federation, Corinne Deacon received the support of a fellow coach. On the sidelines of Clermont’s defeat against Lens (0-4), during which Loïs Openda scored a hat-trick in record time, Auvergne coach Pascal Gastien was indignant at the dismissal of the former coach of Les Bleues.

    “I had a bad week, regretted the coach, close to the former coach of Clermont (2014-17), at the microphone of Prime Video. What I saw was despicable. There are people who should have reacted and who didn’t, I was very surprised. I think we need to protect the coaches a little more. The Federation has been weak”

    “I don’t think Wendie Renard had any sanctions”

    Gastien regretted that Deacon, who crystallized resentment and criticism since his appointment in 2017 due to a management deemed authoritarian and divisive, may have been dismissed because of a revolt led by executives of his own workforce (Renard, Diani, Katoto). “I don’t think Wendie Renard had any sanctions,” he said. It is serious for our profession. For the coaches who arrive, if we let this kind of thing happen, it’s the door open to everything. It’s already difficult enough as it is. »

    Dismissed last Thursday, Corinne Deacon left the controls of the national team on a very mixed record. Sportingly, she failed to win a title, settling for a place in the quarterfinals of the 2019 World Cup at home and a semi-final at Euro 2022, despite the quality players at his disposal and the convincing results of French clubs in the Champions League.
