Le Graet warns Juventus whiz Rabiot: Deschamps not spiteful, but..

French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet is unsure if Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot will make the 2020 Euros squad.

Rabiot upset fans and Les Bleus coach Didier Deschamps by refusing to be one of the emergency reserves for France's World Cup squad in 2018.

Le Graet told L'Equipe: "It's more complicated if not every starter is playing regularly. But that is only my opinion. I also know Didier a little. He is not spiteful, but he has memory.

"I never had anything against him (Rabiot). I wanted to meet him, not to punish him. I am pleased to see that he is playing again in a prestigious club, where he has been in charge lately."
