Man Utd fullback Evra unhappy being singled out by FFF
Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra insists he is "surprised" that he and four France team-mates have been singled out by the French Football Federation following their farcical World Cup campaign.
The FFF on Friday called five players to appear before its disciplinary committee to discuss the behaviour of the national team during the tournament, when in-fighting led to them being eliminated in the group stage.
Evra, who was named captain before the World Cup began but was dropped for the final group game, told Le Figaro: "I am surprised, because I thought everyone wanted to turn the page after the World Cup.
"We must think about the future.
"Why punish us more than others? It's over now. The penalty of not selecting the 23 players from the World Cup for the friendly with Norway is consistent. That showed that there were not five or six 'ringleaders', as had been written."
