Sagnol has stuck the knife into the Lyon skipper, claiming he should have been benched and lost the captaincy after his failed move to Liverpool last summer.
"They have to take the armband off him and put him on the bench if he doesn't want to play," he told RMC. “They did the same with [Yoann] Gourcuff."
But while injury might have cost Fekir his move to Jurgen Klopp 's side last summer, Sagnol thinks there is another big reason why he's yet to earn a move to one of the top teams on the planet.
"He is too inconsistent with his performances and it has cooled the interest in him from big clubs," he explained.
"They want players who are eight out of ten all the time.
"That is not the case with Fekir."
