The former Manchester City star was also pleased with the fact that France won the world championship. However, in his view Les Blues can still perform better, especially if you call higher quality players like Karim Benzema.
The French National Team managed to become a champion at the 2018 World Cup and then defeated Croatia in the final round. Previously, Didier Deschamps’ troops appeared impressed by getting rid of strong candidates such as Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium.
Samir Nasri was also pleased with the success of his compatriots, but he wished that the national team was handled by Pep Guardiola, who would definitely play more beautiful football.
“I am happy that France won the 2018 World Cup, but there are some shortcomings. Deschamps can form three teams that play at a very good level, and I have the right to dislike it, ”
“Listen, I have a lot of players who play for the national team. They deserve to be world champions, but if Guardiola coaches France, you will see how wonderful they play. ” Nasri said quoted from Marca.
Problem coach Didier Deschamps, Nasri did not hesitate to criticize the policy of the tactician to cross out some of the names of great players. For example Karim Benzema, who appeared consistent with Real Madrid and won the European Champions League, but was not called.
Instead the manager called Olivier Giroud, who appeared cheerful at Arsenal and now Chelsea. Then there was Ben Arfa, who performed brilliantly with Nice in 2016, and was not even called to play at the Euro in the same year.
“I don’t understand why Benzema didn’t play at Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup. I don’t understand why I didn’t participate in the 2014 World Cup.”
“I also do not understand why Hatem Ben Arfa was not selected for Euro 2016 after undergoing an extraordinary season with Nice,” he concluded.
Actually, Karim Benzema’s deletion is inseparable from the sex video scandal that involved his name five years ago. But the 33-year-old figure was proven innocent, even so he was still ignored by Deschamps.
