Four France players facing disciplinary proceedings

Four France players face disciplinary action for their behaviour at Euro 2012, the French Football Federation (FFF) has announced, reports BBC Sport. Samir Nasri insulted a reporter while Jeremy Menez did the same with captain Hugo Lloris.

Hatem Ben Arfa rowed with Laurent Blanc and Yann M'Vila did not shake the coach's hand when substituted.

FFF president Noel Le Graet said individual bonus money of £80,000 due to the entire squad had been "frozen".

"Hatem Ben Arfa, Yann M'Vila, Samir Nasri and Jeremy Menez are summoned to appear before the disciplinary committee," said Le Graet.

And he added: "I don't like to punish by nature and I don't like to deliver a hasty opinion, but our players should be punished or sanctioned.

"I don't want them thinking they are victims. They are not."
