All this goes back to 2008.
After the french performance in the European Nations Cup, Domenech should have been sacked. He wasn't.
The likely candidate was Didier Deschamp.
Didier Deschamp : captain of the Marseille team that won the CL.
Captain of the World Cup winners in 1998.
Manager of the Monaco team that went to theCL final, beating Mourinho's Chelsea in the semis.
That kind of record wasn't acceptable to Gerard Houillier and Michel Platini. They hate the guy, for some reason... jealousy?
Within the FFF these two are greatly respected, so...
they pushed the French Federation for Domenech to be kept as responsable for the French national side. So, Domenech was kept !
(During that time Deschamp returned to his last club, Juventus - where he also had been captain - to take them back into the Italian first division. When that was done he took over at Marseilles and they are now French Champions for the first time in almost twenty years.)
Concerning the World Cup...
The players, or someone, should have done something in 2008.
They didn't ... and now a congenital idiot in charge of the team.
The players are sick to death with it.
Finally did you know, and here I'm totally serious, that Domenech uses fortune-tellers to help him pick the team ?
