Didier Deschamps has now become totally legend for France after a second stadium was named in his honour due to his World Cup triumph.
The Blues boss has already got a stadium named after him in his hometown of Bayonne and has now received another stadium renamed after him in Monaco.
The stadium was called the Stade Marquet located just right of Monaco’s Stade Louis II. But on Wednesday, the stadium changed the name to the ‘Stade Didier Deschamps’.
The football ground’s new name was unveiled in the presence of the France manager along with his wife Claude, his son and Monaco Prince Albert II in front of a crowd of 500 people.
Deschamps also won the World Cup with France national team in 1998 when he was the captain and have won it again for the second time in their history in 2018 after 20 years.
“For me and my family, it is a huge honour to have the name of my family associated with this stage,” said Deschamps.
“The most important thing is the little ones, the young footballers. Seeing smiles, tears, joy, happiness, there’s nothing more beautiful.”
The 49-year-old, who has been in charge of France since 2012, has now joined Brazilian Mario Zagallo and German Franz Beckenbauer as the only three to have won the Trophy as a player and a coach.
