    'I'd do it again tomorrow' - No regrets for Payet after injury ends World Cup dream

    Dimitri Payet has no regrets about risking his fitness in the Europa League final despite the decision costing him a spot in France's World Cup squad. The Marseille skipper left the pitch in tears after just half an hour of Wednesday's crushing 3-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid in Lyon. Payet, who had been troubled by a muscle problem in the lead-up to the match, sustained a fresh hamstring injury that France boss Didier Deschamps confirmed as the reason for his exclusion from the 23 for Russia.  The 31-year-old former West Ham playmaker took to social media on Saturday to offer his support to the national team, while insisting he would not hesitate to make the same call again. "When you are a professional player, the France team is above all, it's true," Payet wrote on Instagram.   Bonjour à tous, Tout d’abord je tenais à vous remercier pour vos messages et pour votre soutien cela me touche énormément. Quand on est joueur professionnel, l’équipe de France est au dessus de tout c’est vrai, Mais L’OM est dans mon cœur et si il faut le refaire demain, après demain, dans 6 mois, dans 1 an, je le referais sans me poser la moindre question. Je le répète, j’aime ce club et je suis près à faire des sacrifices pour lui si cela peut le faire grandir encore. J’étais parfaitement au courant des risques que je prenais et j’en assume entièrement les conséquences. Je suis et je serais le premier supporter des bleus pour cette coupe du monde. Je vais me soigner et commencer à préparer la saison prochaine. Vous pouvez compter sur moi. Allez les bleus et surtout allez L’OM. @olympiquedemarseille @equipedefrance @famillespoir #10 #oooooorrr #lelitecestnous #NMP-10 #teamboumbam #EtGardezQuoi #allezlom #

    'Marseille would ignore €80m Thauvin bid'

    Marseille president Jacques-Henri Eyraud claims he would ignore an €80 million ($94m) offer for Florian Thauvin. The 25-year-old has been linked with Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid after a stellar season in Ligue 1, in which he registered 22 goals and 11 assists in 34 appearances. Thauvin's form, which also earned him a place in France's World Cup squad, underlines the improvements he has made since struggling desperately at Newcastle United after leaving Marseille for England in 2015. And Eyraud has no desire to see the winger depart the Europa League finalists for a second time. "If there is an offer of 80 million euros for Florian Thauvin, I won't even look at it!" he told SFR Sport. "He's aware that OM have given him a lot of support. This is not the end of the story. There are still even more beautiful pages to write. We're counting on him for next season to take us even further. "He has had an extraordinary season. He's a great player. He has grown, he has matured, and the coach has helped him a lot to achieve his goals, even to surpass them. "The numbers speak for him and it's a great satisfaction to see him in [Didier] Deschamps' squad." Eyraud is also eager to keep head coach Rudi Garcia at Stade Velodrome beyond this season. The former Roma boss was appointed just three days after Marseille was bought by American Franck McCourt and Eyraud considers it among the best things he has done for the club. "He's one of my best decisions. I'm so happy to have taken it," he said. "He has character, a clear mental strength, he can handle a dressing room. He's close to the players and shows all the necessary authority. "He's had a great season and he'll continue with us." Marseille finished fourth in Ligue 1 and reached the Europa League final, where they lost 3-0 to Atletico Madrid.

    Atletico Madrid charged by UEFA over 'racist banner'

    Atletico Madrid have been charged by UEFA for displaying what European football's governing body described as a "racist" banner during the Europa League final. It is understood that the charge relates to a flag displayed by fans inside Groupama Stadium that appeared to be styled like a Nazi war ensign. UEFA has charged Atleti, who won the final against Marseille 3-0 , with alleged racist behaviour and the setting off fireworks. Disciplinary proceedings have also been opened against Marseille, with charges relating to alleged crowd disturbances, acts of damage, setting off of fireworks, throwing objects and for delaying the kick-off. The case will be heard by UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on May 31.

    Incredible Griezmann one of the world’s best – Lucas Hernandez

    Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has been hailed as “one of the best players in the world” by team-mate Lucas Hernandez. The 27-year-old France international showcased his talent in the Europa League final on Wednesday, as he scored twice to lead Atletico to a 3-0 success over Marseille in Lyon. The former Real Sociedad player took his goals with great authority to provide the platform for the Spanish side’s comfortable victory and Lucas hailed him after the match. “He’s incredible, one of the best players in the world,” he said. Griezmann has, however, been strongly linked with a summer move away from Diego Simeone’s side, with Barcelona leading the race for his signature. Lucas added his voice to those of his team-mates who do not want to see him move. “I hope that he’ll stay here for many years with us,” the Marseille-born defender said. While the forward is a sure-fire bet to be drafted into Didier Deschamps’ France squad for the World Cup on Thursday, Lucas is also hopeful of being named in the panel but says he will not allow it to define his season. “I’m really happy, proud of what I have done this season,” he said. “I’ve improved myself a lot, I’ve learned many things and I’ve acquired a good deal of experience. I hope I will be in it. “Where will I be when it is announced? With my family, my wife, my mum and my brother.”
