NEW COACH: With Laurent Blanc stepping down as head coach of the national team, LE MONDE speculated that Didier Deschamps, who just stepped down as coach of French side Olympique Marseille, could be the man for the job. His past experience as a player for both clubs and the French national team along with his "coaching experience in Monaco, Juventus and Marseille" make him a candidate.
