The decision to send striker Nicolas Anelka home, after he launched a foul-mouthed tirade at Domenech, caused huge unrest in the France squad, with rows, resignations and the players refusing to train. But Domenech's mother Germaine has leapt to the defence of her son, warning Anelka to watch his back. "I'd like to meet Anelka and give him a piece of my mind as a mother," said Germaine. "It's distressing to be insulted like that, because Raymond is not just the coach, he's also my son. It's a double insult to my son and to me as his mother."
For the record, Anelka is alleged to have said to Domenench: "F*** you, you son of a whore."
