Henry turns on Domenech
Tuesday 08 September 2009
French football is in turmoil after the national manager, Raymond Domenech, came under fire from his players led by Thierry Henry, who told him that Les Bleus have "no organisation, no style, no guidance and no identity".
Domenech is under pressure across the Channel after France failed to beat Romania on Saturday, drawing 1-1 in Paris. They now go into a crucial match against Serbia, who top Group Seven, in Belgrade tomorrow knowing that if they lose they can no longer qualify automatically.
Domenech tried to spark a reaction from his players prior to the Romania game by questioning their hunger, but Henry is reported to have responded by saying: "I have been in the France team for 12 years and never have I been in this situation. We do not know how to play, where to go, there is no organisation. There is no style, no guidance and no identity."
