French Team's Popularity Plummets Following Euro 2012 Loss To Spain

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. The support of his "very influential past teammates like Zidane, Barthez and Lizarazu are in his favor." As are his methods: "his charisma, his record and his grip may be able to overcome a young loud mouth and individualistic generation" (LE MONDE, 7/2).
