Are these new rumours about Escudé? Because last time, Escudé declined when he was offered the job of captain. That's how the whole story started, Escudé was asked by somebody from the FFT during Monte-Carlo if he was interested in the job, Escudé was shocked to be asked this "behind Forget's back", so to say, and went to the press with the story.
There is a whole page about this topic again today in L'Équipe, the French DC soap opera is going on.
Richie says he's sure Forget will remain captain because he's the best one for France, but Forget himself says it isn't sure and right now, he isn't officially the captain and not commenting on the draw. If he keeps the job, he wants to be able to take the decisions - and he wasn't pleased about yesterday's article in l'Équipe about the changes in the French team.
