Man City star slams France boss and Spurs stopper

Manchester City midfielder has taken a swipe at France manager Didier Deschamps, as well as Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris, reports the Daily Mirror.

Nasri labelled the France boss a ‘joker’ and a ‘hypocrite’ after being left out of the squad for last summer’s World Cup, whilst he also questioned Lloris’ position as captain.

The Manchester City star retired from international football following his omission in the summer, and any chance of a comeback was effectively ended in midweek when Deschamps signed a contract extension with France until 2018.

And that has encouraged Nasri to come out and have another dig at the man who cost him a place at Brazil 2014.

Asked by L’Equipe 21 what he really thinks of Deschamps, Nasri said: “Joker”

And asked what he would say to his face, he added: “I would tell him he is a hypocrite. And he should act like a man and take responsibilities for his decisions and say to me: ‘Listen, it is like this, you are not coming, tough luck’.

“At least have a discussion like a man.”

Nasri also discussed the claims that France captain and Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris led a delegation to see Deschamps demanding that Nasri be dropped from the squad following the World Cup play off win over Ukraine.

The former Arsenal man says he has spoken to Lloris about the reports, and would be willing to shake his hand when they come up against each other.

“I have already asked for his side of the story,” he said. “I called him and he told me it wasn’t true.

“If I had confirmation, maybe I would not shake his hand, I don’t know. There is no smoke without fire.”
