Exit means Manchester United man believes explanation is owed...France captain Patrice Evra has vowed to tell the French people the truth about what has happened this week, announcing he plans to hold a press conference in the coming days.
"I think this is not the time to give our accounts, but the time to apologise. This apology is for millions of French [people],” Evra told TF1.
“I wanted to do it yesterday but the coach [Raymond Domenech] would not let me,” continued Evra, possibly revealing the reason for his absence from yesterday’s press conference.
“I'll do a press conference this week. The French people need to know the truth because the team of France belongs to the French."
Evra, who informed Domenech that the team would not be training on Saturday following the exclusion of Nicolas Anelka, went on to confirm that the squad was unhappy with the treatment of their team-mate and that he will hold his press conference later this week.
“We were unhappy about the decision made for Nicolas Anelka, but you'll know everything very soon,” he said.
“I will detail everything in a press conference... You will know during the week.”
