Nicolas Anelka, whose filthy mouth caused the biggest problem, has been suspended for 18 games. He called the manager mother a whore in a dressing room bust up and refused to apologise.
Franck Ribery will have to serve three game suspension, Jérémy Toulalan will miss one game and Eric Abidal has escaped punishment.
Begrudgingly, United gave permission for Evra to attend the FFF hearing today.
Upon learning that he was set to be one of five players brought in front of the footballing body, Evra was unhappy that some players had been singled out.
“Why punish us more than others?” he questioned. “It’s over now. The penalty of not selecting the 23 players from the World Cup for the friendly with Norway is consistent. That showed that there were not five or six ‘ringleaders’, as had been written.”
Personally, I’m more than happy for a club over country mentality to be encouraged in our players. Cheers France!
