Deschamps happy to go back to Italy for the UEFA Nations League

France coach Didier Deschamps expressed his satisfaction about returning to Italy for the Nations League, referencing his previous experience at Juventus.

The Azzurri have been drawn into the group of death, pitting them against France, Belgium, and Israel starting from September 2024.

“All the League A teams are strong, so there were bound to be four high-quality groups,” said Deschamps at the ceremony in Paris.

“Personally, I am happy to go back to Italy to face the Azzurri. These are going to be high-level games for all involved.”

Much of Deschamps’ career was spent in Italy with Juventus. He played as a midfielder for the club from 1994 to 1999 and later returned as a coach for the 2006-07 season in Serie B.

“It is a tough group, but it will be tough for everyone. This competition also comes after the European Championship in Germany and until then all the coaches will be focused on preparing for that.

“A new tournament begins in September and there is always the ambition to go all the way.”
