Incase you’ve been living under a rock, national team managers have been announcing their preliminary squads for next months WC. Not surprisingly, Samir Nasri did not make the cut for Lea Bleus. Shortly after Didier Deshamps announced his squad, Nasri’s girlfriend, Anara Atanes, took to social media to rant about the situation (you know, as all mature grown ups do).
The image above is but two of her tweets, there was a whole lot that she posted in Twitter (which may be deleted by now).
Now Didier Deshamps did not take this lightly, and he is suing the songbird with the backing of FFF (French Football Federation).
Nasri has come out to say he may be considering retiring from international football, which is ironic, because after his girlfriends rant, I think she may have ensured he never dons a Les Bleus jersey again.
