Didier

Born in Bayonne, a historically charged region of France; Didier Deschamps started out playing soccer for local club Aviron Bayonnais while he was in primary school. At age 15, while he was performing in a youth tournament, he was spotted by the scouts of first division French team Nantes, whom he would sign in 1983.

He won the 1998 FIFA World Cup with the French national team. Together with Patrick Vieira or Makelele (or sometimes both), Didier Deschamps formed an impenetrable midfield for France; which many believe was the key to the team’s great successes in 1998 and 2000.

He managed to win two more league titles and help Marseille become the first (and only) team to win the UEFA Champions League in 1993. His performances that season made Juventus Torino consider him as an option for their midfield and one year later, in 1994, they bought him.

After retiring as a player at age 32 in 2001, he went into football management.

He began coaching the French national team after coach Laurent Blanc resigned following the team’s quarterfinal loss to Spain in Euro 2012.
