If he has not been called by Didier Deschamps for almost two years, Djibril Sidibé has not put aside the Blues. Author of a convincing start to the season with Monaco, like his very clean copy (4 interceptions, 10 balls recovered) in Clermont (3-1) on Sunday, the right side of Monaco (29 years old) dreams of the Cup of the world in Qatar in 2022. And he wants to give himself the means.
“The coach has his reasons, I respect him and I will always go in his direction. But as a competitor, it doesn’t get deep inside me ”
“If I am no longer called up for the France team, it is because somewhere I have not been up to what I have been in the past, recognized Sidibé in an interview broadcast on Sunday in the Canal Football Club. […] The hardest part is when a left-back plays your post (Ferland Mendy in October 2020, editor’s note). It stings you deep inside yourself. But this is not a criticism of the coach. He has his reasons, I respect him and I will always go in his direction. But as a competitor, it doesn’t get deep inside me. “
Loaned to Everton in 2019-2020, Sidibé says he has “Really bossy” on the plans “Technique, tactics, nutrition and sleep” to become indispensable again in the eyes of Deschamps.
If his abortive departure from Atlético de Madrid in 2018 frustrated him, he is today ” very very good In Monaco and wants to be ambitious. “My dream, my goal, is to be part of this group (for the World Cup, editor’s note). And not only to be part of it but to play as many matches as possible, launches the side, disappointed by his playing time at the World Cup in Russia (1 match). I don’t want to be just a good player or a very good player, I want to be a reference in this position around the world. “
