Aymeric Laporte: I focus on Man City not Deschamps

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has shrugged off his France snub.

Laporte are in the country this week for their Champions League clash with Lyon.

He was asked about whether he could have an impact on Didier Deschamps' thinking by doing well in the game.

He replied: “Maybe for the French people it'll have an impact but I'm at City.

“The objective is high performances for City today, tomorrow and in the future."

He added that he has now got to grips with Guardiola's way of doing things: “We learn day by day, that's exactly what I'm doing. It's about getting to our objectives."
