Between Didier Deschamps and England, one season and that’s it: « Chelsea thought it would keep him longer »


A small turn and then goes away! Didier Deschamps’ experience at Chelsea fizzled out. Flashback. At the end of spring 1999, the 30-year-old captain of the Blues came to the end of his rich history with Juventus Turin, joined in 1994. Virgin of title, the season of the Old Lady (7th in Serie A), polluted by judicial investigations linked to doping cases, exudes hints of the end of the cycle. The Piedmontese leaders do not show a real eagerness to retain their player. Faced with this posture, close to mistrust, the Basque midfielder, invaded by a certain physical but also mental weariness, feels the need to reinvent himself elsewhere. He therefore cuts to the quick and opts for Chelsea.
