Lilian Thuram in call for Patrice Evra ban

Former France defender Lilian Thuram has called on the French Football Federation to ban current captain Patrice Evra from future international action.

Speaking after yesterday morning's meeting of the FFF's general council, Thuram said: “I demanded that the players be harshly punished and that Evra never returns to the France squad.

“When you are captain of the France team, you must have a responsibility to the jersey and the people.”
