recently revealed that FIFA wants to hold the World Cup every two years.

The plan would cause problems for international players with an already heavy workload for clubs and countries.

Deschamps has said the plan will only devalue the event, though he appreciates any change will not come during his time with Les Bleus.

"To be honest, my first feeling in my playing career, being able to move on to a World Cup every two years, it makes me feel like I'm trivializing it,"


told reporters on Thursday


"That's the best word I can think of. I do not have all the ins and outs. I will not be the expert but until now, every four years, it was very good like that. We are used to it.

"Afterwards, it is according to the interests of each other. If the majority is there, it can pass. I think at that time, I wouldn't be concerned anymore. So I would watch."
