Dreossi: M’Vila and Mavinga lack respect for the game

The Stade Rennes general manager has criticized the duo after they were part of a five-man group who attended a nightclub on the eve of a France U-21 Euro 2013 qualifier.

Rennes general manager Pierre Dreossi has demanded a meeting with his players Yann M’Vila and Chris Mavinga to get an explanation for their behavior on international duty.

The duo, along with Antoine Griezmann (Real Sociedad), M’Baye Niang (AC Milan) and Wissam Ben Yedder (Toulouse), went out in Paris on the eve of their 2013 U-21 European Championship qualifier with Norway. France Under-21’s went on to lose 5-3, thus ending their hopes of qualification, and Dreossi plans to meet his players on Friday.

“This can't be tolerated. We mustn't let this go," Dreossi told the club's official website. "We will meet to get an honest explanation, because this is a lack of respect for football, for the team and also for Rennes.”

Noel Le Graet, the French Football President, has confirmed to French radio station RMC than an investigation is underway about the incident.

Former Lens and Auxerre coach Guy Roux has been particularly damning in his response to the situation. When asked about their behavior, he responded, “Not stupid, just b*****ds. It's a total disgrace, they slammed all the values, values of the games togetherness and patriotism.”
