France national team manager Didier Deschamps has signed a contract extension until 2026.

The 54-year-old’s contract was due to expire after the 2022 World Cup but he has committed his future to Les Bleus for another four years.

“The French Football Federation and Noel Le Graet, its president, are pleased to announce the extension of Didier Deschamps’ contract as head of the French national team until June 2026,” the French football federation said in a statement on Saturday.

Assistant coach Guy Stephan, goalkeeping coach Franck Raviot and fitness coach Cyril Moine will also stay on.

Deschamps has managed France since 2012.

He led them to a World Cup triumph in 2018 and the Nations League in 2021.

They most recently finished as runners up at the 2022 World Cup, losing a penalty shootout to Argentina in the final after a pulsating 3-3 draw.
