PARIS - Former France coach
Raymond Domenech should have spoken to the players about
their World Cup mutiny, not months later in the media, Franck
Ribery said on Thursday.
Domenech, replaced by Laurent Blanc after France crashed out
in the first round in South Africa, called his team "horrible
unthinking brats" this week after they refused to train when
Nicolas Anelka was sent home for swearing at him last June.
"I don't know why he says these things. I find it a shame.
The World Cup has gone, I don't want to talk about Domenech any
more," fit-again Bayern winger Ribery told L'Equipe.
"I am very motivated to get back in the France team with a
new staff and new coach. In South Africa Domenech didn't talk to
us. He should have done it immediately, not only now. He should
have said it to our face, it's not good."
