French Federation hit back at girlfriend of Man City's Nasri

The French Football Federation has attacked the girlfriend of Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri over tweets this week.

Anara Atanes hit out at France coach Didier Deschamps in a foul-mouthed tirade on Twitter after the former Juventus and Marseille manager controversially left out Nasri from his World Cup squad, despite the midfielder's stellar season with Manchester City.

Atanes later apologised for her remarks.

The FFF has taken a dim view of the situation, however, and released a small statement on its official website on Friday, backing Deschamps.

"The FFF condemns insulting remarks against Didier Deschamps and fully supports the coach in his approach," said the statement.

"The unanimous feedback confirmed that the whole of France condemned such remarks. The FFF believes that the unanimous indignation is enough to condemn such behaviour."
