Nasri, 3 others face disciplinary charges
Monday, July 2, 2012
PARIS (AP) -- France internationals Samir Nasri, Hatem ben Arfa, Yann M'Vila and Jeremy Menez will face a disciplinary commission over their actions at the European Championship.
French soccer federation president Noel Le Graet announced Tuesday that the quartet would be questioned "as soon as possible."
Nasri issued an expletive-laced rant at a journalist following France's 2-0 loss to Spain in the quarterfinals, while all four were involved in a heated changing-room dust-up following the 2-0 defeat to Sweden in the final group game.
Le Graet added that the federation needed "a few days" to decide who it wants to succeed Laurent Blanc as France coach.
He denied that Didier Deschamps -- who quit as Marseille coach on Monday -- had turned down the job and says he remains on the shortlist.
