France coach Didier Deschamps has claimed his nation's media are as badly behaved as the footballers they criticise.

Quote of the day

“Apparently, you’re better informed than me. It’s bizarre, because you must frequent the same places as the players. When we went to play in Ukraine, I also know the media’s evenings were quite animated.

“Curiously, you go to the same places, but that is less well-known. Often, I find out about it all the same. Just in case. Because you might have files on the players, but I also have them on you. It’s good to know what’s going on. After that, each person does what they want.”

Deschamps was speaking after being told that there was a brothel 500 metres from the squad hotel in the Brazilian city of Ribeirao Preto.
