Didier Deschamps has said he is pleased to be back in Italy with his France team for tonight's friendly between the two countries.

Deschamps enjoyed a distinguished playing career at Juventus, whom he subsequently managed after leaving Monaco less than a decade ago.

It is a friendly, but the result is always important, said Deschamps.

When you take on a team like Italy, who are one of the best in the world, there are always special expectations and it requires a particular level of concentration.

I was happy in Turin, both professionally and personally. I have only positive memories. Im happy to be back in Italy, even if I had hoped this game would be played in Turin.

It will be wonderful to meet up with players who I knew and had the pleasure to train.
