Juventus striker David Trezeguet has criticised France coach Raymond Domenech for leaving him out of the squad for this month’s Euro 2008 qualifiers against the Faroe Islands and Lithuania.
Trezeguet was dropped after failing to score in France’s 1-0 defeat by Scotland last month.
“The coach has always said that he calls up players on the basis of their performances for their clubs,” Trezeguet told the Gazzetta dello Sport Web site.
“I have scored seven goals in six matches. I could not do more. I am disappointed. There is no explanation. I have talked with my coaches about it and no one understands the decision.”
Trezeguet, 29, said he would now seriously consider his international future.
“After the World Cup I was thinking of leaving the national team and giving up my place to someone that responded better to the system of play Domenech wants,” he said.
“I am giving myself two months to decide. I want to feel useful to the national team and not be called up to make up the numbers. If in time responding to the call-ups becomes a pain, then it won’t be worth it any more.”
