France Squad Left Training Ground Following another Fall out

Players of France World Cup squad declined to train following a heated argument between captain Patrice Evra and fitness coach Robert Duverne. The incident happened just few minutes after the training session had begun. The bust-up saw Duverne throwing out his accreditation card.

Following the incident, all the members of the France squad got into the team bus. Inside the bus, they had a meeting with coach Raymond Domenech who tried his best to bring the players back to training.

It has come as another blow to France who are now on the verge of getting out of the tournament following their recent loss to Mexico. France now needs a big margin win over host South Africa in their decisive Group A match.

On Saturday, France football federation knocked striker Nicolas Anelka out of the squad following his half-time foul-mouthed tirade at Domenech during the match against Mexico. Anelka has already been sent back home.

Now, other members of the France squad have revealed their ‘opposition to FFF decision’ on Anelka. Meanwhile, team director Jean-Louis Valentin has resigned from his job following the recent fall out between Evra and fitness coach.

Football fans in France would now be utterly disappointed with the news coming from South Africa suggesting internal discontent between the players and management in the France camp.
