Griezmann considering retirement after captaincy was given to Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe is the new France national team captain after Hugo Lloris announced his retirement from the team. Tottenham’s goalkeeper retired right after the World Cup final when he saw his co-players lose the trophy to Argentina on penalties.

The next in the line seems to be Mbappe, with Didier Deschamps considering thoroughly all the available options. He settled for the 24-year-old Paris Saint Germain star, who was magnificent in the team’s recent World Cup campaign in Qatar.

This decision seems to have transformed Antoine Griezmann into a furious man, considering that Atletico Madrid’s attacker has been serving his national team for quite some time now. He may be annoyed, which may lead to his early retirement, meaning that he can’t add more to his 117 caps. The 32-year-old made his debut back in 2014 and since then he helped the team a lot, being a valuable member of the 2018 squad, a group of players that reached the top of the world.

Adding more to the drama, Deschamps stated that Mbappe would be the ideal long-term option. Giving the captaincy to a young player though means that the older players will not be happy about that. Griezmann is upset and angry indeed, feeling betrayed due to his international experience and loyalty to Deschamps.

We can’t wait to see what Griezmann will choose in the next couple of weeks, as the EURO 2024 qualifiers are ready to begin, with France facing the Netherlands and the Republic of Ireland.
