Player was not even placed on Les Bleus’ seven-man standby list.
The French national team head coach Didier Deschamps and the French Football Federation (FFF) have both opened legal proceedings against the girlfriend of Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
Nasri’s British-born partner Anara Atanes tweeted: “F*** France and F*** Deschamps! What a s*** manager” in the immediate aftermath of the decision by the Les Bleus manager to leave the France international out if his 23-man squad for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
And now both Deschamps and the FFF have responded to the model’s remarks by issuing legal proceedings against her.
“FFF condemns insulting remarks against Didier Deschamps and fully supports his coach in his approach,” read a statement released on Friday.
“The unanimous feedback confirmed that the entire France condemned such remarks. FFF believes that the unanimous indignation is enough to condemn such behaviour.”
Atanes had tweeted after her original comments: “I apologize if i offended anyone from france, My tweets were not aimed at the nation as a whole.”
