National team manager explains why he called up Rabiot for the World Cup

France manager Didier Deschamps praised Adrien Rabiot for his performance on the pitch after naming the midfielder to his team for Qatar 2022.

Rabiot was left without a place in the squad for the last World Cup and has worked hard to ensure he remains a key member of his country’s national team.

The midfielder has been in excellent form for Juve this campaign and has been their highest scoring player in his position.

His form made him too good to leave at home and Deschamps explains the decision to appoint him to the squad via Calciomercato:

He has changed many positions on the pitch, he already did it at Juve, before he was no longer himself, he was limited by his position. Today his growth has led him to have a greater reach, I like the formula he used to describe himself: a player who gives balance. It may not seem like something of great value, but for a coach it is.”

Juve FC says

Rabiot has been one of the best French players in Europe this season and the decision to name him in the team was a natural one because of that.

The midfielder will be a key player for Les Bleus and the fans at home are hoping he will propel them to win the competition again.
