Former France captain Wendie Renard, who announced last month that she was retiring from the national team, now says she is willing to return if former coach Corinne Diacre’s successor wants her.

Renard announced last month that she would not play in this summer’s World Cup to preserve her mental health, and RMC Sport reported that she would not represent the national team while Diacre was in charge.

Last week, the French Federation sacked Diacre on the recommendation of an Executive Committee, and Olympique Lyonnais defender Renard told ‘Europe 1’ that she is willing to return if the next coach wants to work with her.


“It’s the manager who will select me if I perform well for my club… but why not (return)?” she said.

“I’m a competitor at heart. I love this jersey and I want to do everything I can to win a title in it.”


France will be looking to win their first FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer in Australia and New Zealand (July 20-August 2).
