Guinea national team coach Didier Six is hoping to convince French protege Bouna Sarr to commit his international future with the West African side.
Six was in France to meet the 27-year-old right-back and try to convince him to pick up the Guinean passport and enjoy international football.
Sarr was born in France to a Senegalese father and a Guinean mother. He qualifies to represent France, Senegal and Guinea. He is currently plying his trade at Marseille.
In 2014, he was called up by the Guinea national team in but he did not play for them. In late April 2018, he was approached by the Senegal national team and turned down the offer. He is hoping that Didier Deschamps will invite to Les Bleus.
Wolrd Cup offer
Six says that Sarr's best chance of playing international football lies with Syli National. “ I told him that I am building a formidable group of players with Guinea, that I needed him in my side and that he is the one I needed. It is up to him to decide," he said.
"He will be 28 in a few weeks, and I think he knows he will have to make a decision. Personally, I offer him a chance to at AFCON and maybe the World Cup. Can the French team offer him that?"
Six has been touring Europe meeting Syli players and other potential recruits as he seeks to build a formidable team to take part in the 2022 FIFA WorldCup qualifiers.
