It is the time period that the 32 teams that qualified for the 2014 FIFA World Cup are unveiling their squads. The coaches from all the 32 teams have to do so not later than 2nd June.

With France expected to unveil its squad very soon, Andre Pierre Gignac who plays in the striker position at Marseille is pessimistic as far as securing a place into the squad is concerned. This is despite the fact that he has had a very good season at his club.

Gignac who is aged 28 has netted 16 times in the Ligue 1 matches and a total of 22 goals in all the competitions hence in the second position on the scoring chart after Zlatan Ibrahimovic who plays for Paris Saint-Germain.

With all this good performance, Gignac has given up and does not believe that his performance will secure him a place in the France’s squad. He complains of the last international match they played against Georgia that ended up goalless last year September.

When talking to L’Equipe, Gignac said that this is the best season for himself as he has managed to score 22 goals in just 42 matches. Gignac honestly believes he won’t make it into the squad since there are other players who have had very good season.

The likes of Gameiro, Lacazette and Bafetimbi. He adds that he has forced Deschamps select him by play well in this season but that seem not to be enough. The international star was played for 30 minutes during the match against Georgia but says he did not play the best of him.

On Sunday last week, Gignac scored for Marseille leading them into a 4-2 victory against Lyon. Gignac is hopeful to score 2 goals during their clash with Bordeaux this coming Saturday.

Gignac has 1 year to the end of his signed contract and has said he is ready to work with the incoming coach Marcelo Bielsa. He adds that he want to stay a little longer at OM so as to be able to learn some skills from Bielsa. He do believes he can work with the new coach.
