Didier Deschamps, the manager of France, has made it clear to Raphael Varane of Manchester United that only healthy players will be chosen for the World Cup.
The defender for Manchester United is currently working to recover from an injury sustained in the draw against Chelsea, and he has received word regarding his place at the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.
The former Real Madrid center-back, who was withdrawn in tears after the 1-1 draw with Chelsea earlier this month, is currently making an effort to recover from an injury.
Prior to the Premier League’s break for the upcoming tournament in Qatar, he is anticipated to sit out all of the Red Devils’ upcoming games.
He won’t be able to play for Manchester United in this stretch of games because he will be out until at least the World Cup.
If Varane doesn’t return to full fitness over the coming weeks, his World Cup spot is now seriously in doubt.
Les Bleus manager Deschamps has stated that he has no intention of traveling to Qatar with any injured players, which appears to be a direct message to the injured United defender.
“It’s clean and clear. I’ve never left for a major competition with an injured player. The only thing I can guarantee is that if a player cannot play when the competition begins, I will not take them.
Going for a big competition with unsuitable players, it already consumes too much attention and monopolizes the medical staff for those who must participate.
Personally, I believe that we need to leave with competent and reliable players,” he declared.
Despite his message, Deschamps seems to still be confident in the 29-year-old after allaying concerns over a significant issue.
“Raphael Varane has less difficulty in this regard because it is a muscle issue.
The United star will be extremely sad if he is forced to miss the competition after helping his nation win its second championship in Russia.
He participated in every single second of the competition and even led his country in their last group match against Denmark,” he continued.
Varane, who has played 11 times for the Red Devils so far this season, was developing a potential friendship with summer signing Lisandro Martinez before suffering an injury.
