Man City defender Laporte: French media disgust me

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte admits he's given up on the French press.

Laporte says he's fed up with his commitment to the national team being questioned after pledging himself to France over Spain.

He told France Football: "In the last two years, I stopped giving interviews to the French media because I was disgusted by the lies that were said and never denied.

"It happened several times. About the French team in particular, from the mouth of a former coach (Willy Sagnol who had said that Laporte wanted to play with the Blues for his career, and not for the love of the shirt).

"I stopped talking, it was useless."

He added: "I said that my wish was to go to France team. Les Bleus is the dream."
