And he insists that his focus remains on getting his national side to the knockout rounds in the summer.

He told L’Equipe: “I woke up, I saw my phone ringing all over the place. I just wanted to tell them, ‘Hey, I played yesterday, I’m tired, leave me alone’.

“Frankly, I don’t even watch this. We can’t focus on that, there are the Euros and then my return to the club. You have to focus on that and not on the external things.”
