The French gaffer defends his star man

Football News: Former France international heaped praised about the world cup winner despites he struggles at the club level.

Deschamps has his full confidence on the 25-year-old.

The French gaffer believes that the star midfielder cannot make Manchester United won single-handedly and he defends his leadership qualities.

In this year the Manchester United star midfielder helped his country to claim their second world cup, but he unable to replicate his world cup form at his club games because of his tense relationship with the special one.

Last day Mourinho stripped the Frenchman on their defeat against West ham in the premier league match, and also in the recent past, both the pair got involved in a confrontation on the training ground.

The Manchester United boss also insisted that no player is bigger than his club while taking of the issue with the French midfielder and claimed that: "after weeks of analysing and changing opinions with my coaching staff, we made the decision Paul is just a player and not a captain."

French national coach points out that their star man’s attitude has always been positive and pointing out the team around him and the playing style of United maybe be the issue at the club.

He stated: "For Paul, it depends not only on him but also the team he is in, the collective way of playing. It is not a case of one player who makes the team win."

"There are a few things people ought to know,"

"First of all, there is an image of Paul that doesn't correspond to who he is.

"Maybe it is because he is a bit eccentric, a bit demonstrative.

"He has been with me since 2013 – that is five years now – and the way he functions is not about him for himself, it is him as part of the group. That is really important.

"His image in the media makes everything quite complicated. The amount of the transfer to Manchester United is ridiculous … it wasn't easy to manage.

"During this World Cup, he managed to get a normal image back. The fact he talks, it liberates him a bit, but the most important thing is that Paul came to this World Cup with a very precise idea: he wanted to prepare himself to be world champion. That is what he had in his mind."
