In addition to his club career, he also has a rich history related to the representation of France. He made his debut in the “Trojkolorowe” team in 2004, still as a player of AS Monaco. Since then, 81 meetings have accumulated on his account, which did not bring any triumphs and the adventure with the national team ends with empty hands.
The figure of the left defender was for many people very controversial. We perfectly remember the situation that took place during his appearances in the Premier League. During one of the duels the scandal broke out, after which Luis Suarez did not give his hand to the Frenchman.
A few years later, it became loud again. As an Olympique Marseille player, he attacked one of his team’s supporters uncompromisingly, displaying eastern martial arts on him. Going in the footsteps of Eric Cantona did not bring him boasting and he left France quite quickly.
