"If I was suspended every time I had insulted a journalist, I'd never have had so many caps. For Samir Nasri, I've heard talk of a two-year suspension. That would be ridiculous and shameful," the former France captain told a news conference.

The executive committee of the French Football Federation is to decide on Tuesday whether to sanction any of the national team's players for their behaviour during Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.

France crashed out to holders Spain in the quarter-finals but their participation was marked by apparent in-fighting in the dressing room and culminated with a tirade of abuse by Nasri after the game against La Roja.
