PARIS - Patrice Evra, who led a player
revolt at the World Cup in South Africa, must never play for
France again, former France captain Lilian Thuram said on
Evra lost the captain's armband and his place in his
starting lineup for his role in the decision by the players to
boycott a training session in support of Nicolas Anelka, who was
sent home for insulting coach Raymond Domenech.
"I asked the federal council (of the French Football
Federation) to sanction the players heavily," FFF member Thuram
told reporters after a meeting of the ruling body in Paris.
"For instance, the captain, Patrice Evra, must never be
called up again," added Thuram, who won a record 142 caps for
France and was a member of their 1998 World Cup-winning squad.
Earlier on Friday, Laurent Blanc was officially appointed
Domenech's replacement as France coach with the mission to
restore the team's pride after their disastrous World Cup
