Zinedine Zidane critical of France team

Former France captain Zinedine Zidane says Raymond Domenech “is

not a coach” and that “there is no teamwork” among the French

players at the World Cup.

Speaking on Canal Plus television Sunday, Zidane said the

players “must take responsibility for themselves” and “must put

helped France win the European Championship in 2000, and inspired

France to the World Cup final in 2006 before being sent off in the


France’s next Group A match is against Mexico on Thursday in
