He further said that, "So many good players have never had the chance to be world champions or their country is not strong enough. For Paul, I think it's the first World Cup that he has gone to and to be a world champion can only be fantastic. So I think the future for him in the French national team can only be brilliant I hope that he understands why he was so good. That's the point about his performance level and his contribution to a winning team."
