'Racist' daubed on France coach Didier Deschamps' house

The word "racist" was daubed on the wall of a house owned by Didier Deschamps days after the France supervisor was accused by Karim Benzema of acquiescing "pressure from a racist part of France".

The Real Madrid striker made the accusation after being excluded of Deschamps' squad for the European champions starting in France next Friday.

Police confirmed to AFP on Saturday that the Deschamps' property in the Brittany town of Concarneau had actually been tagged with the word "racist". It was rapidly wiped off again.

Deschamps' lawyer Carlo Alberto Brusa later on announced his client was suing for "trespassing and damage to personal property".

Sex tape debate

Benzema was left out from France's squad after being accused of complicity in an effort to blackmail France team-mate Mathieu Valbuena over a sextape.

The 28-year-old was extensively condemned for recommending it was his Algerian roots rather than the Valbuena scandal that had triggered his omission.

Valls "shocked" at outburst

France Prime Minister Manuel Valls was amongst those to take the Real Madrid star to job, stating he was "surprised" by the outburst.

On Thursday Marion Mar chal-Le Pen, a French Front nationwide MP and granddaughter of the far ideal celebration’s founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, utilized social media to attack Benzema. France is simply where I play sport, she composed, apparently referring to remarks made by Benzema in the past.
