Nasri left out of Les Bleus squad cos ‘he doesn’t get on with some people & doesn’t like being sub’. Just as well Roy Keane ain’t French.

Didier Deschamps announced his French World Cup squad this evening, and dropped the bomb everyone was expecting: no Premier Leauge and League Cup winning Samir Nasri, because of supposed attitude problems in previous squads, a charge Nasri himself flatly denies as a ‘sham’.
Now, Nasri’s no world beater, but he won two trophies this season and hasn’t said ‘Boo’ to a goose at Manchester City; not picking him because ‘he doesn’t like being sub’ seems a bit petty, and more of a personal thing from Deschamps.
When you look at the list of 7 reserve Bleus – Rémy Cabella, Maxime Gonalon, Alexandre Lacazett, Loïc Perri, Stéphane Ruffie, Morgan Schneiderli, Benoît Tremoulinas, the huge call Deschamps has made is even more glaring.

Many calling Didier Deschamps mad for leaving out Samir Nasri. I remember people calling Aime Jacquet mad for leaving out David Ginola in 98

Didier Deschamps, values his own ego above a strong squad. As a United fan I despise Nasri but he is a proven top quality matchwinner.

Nasri won’t be included despite his great season with City. Deschamps has issues with his attitude. Real shame as we cd do with his talent.

In fairness, Nasri had a decent season, but Deschamps not including him in the squad is a bit overblown.

Deschamps doesn’t like Nasri’s “attitude” so leaves him out of world cup-but he calls up Evra, whose attitude is far worse.

Nasri not going to World Cup cuz he sulks when he’s on the bench…fair play to Deschamps for telling it as it is
