Didier Deschamps to take legal action against Eric Cantona

France boss Didier Deschamps will look to take legal action against Eric Cantona following an interview that the former Manchester United man gave to The Guardian, during which he accused Deschamps of racism, for the non-selections of Karim Benzema and Hatem Ben Arfa.

Deschamps’s lawyer had the following to say to L’Équipe tonight:

“I will initiate actions before the civil and criminal courts to punish this slanderous defamation vis-a-vis Mr. Deschamps’s integrity.”
