At 33, Blaise Matuidi left Juventus this summer to join Inter Miami. A career choice that could have made one think that the former Parisian is saying goodbye to the France team and Euro 2021, yet the midfielder still wants to believe it. “When I signed for Miami of course I thought of the France team. I was aware when I made this choice that it was going to be complicated, but I have no problems with that, I know what I can bring to this France team, but of course, the manager has choices to be made and we must accept them. I have my feet on the ground, always have to believe in it (for the Euro) if I have to be called I would be very happy, but if not, I would be too. ” he declared at the microphone of the French show Téléfoot
A few months before the Euro, Didier Deschamps, the Blues coach hinted that the door was not closed for the 2018 World champion. “He is lucid enough to realize that things are also growing behind. I’m not saying I’m going to take it back, I’m not saying I’m not going to take it back either, but it’s still selectable. ” Blaise Matuidi has not been selected with the EDF since October 2019.
