French legend Zinedine Zidane has backed under-fire Roma defender Philippe Mexes.
Mexes has shown poor form both for Roma and the French national side recently.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It annoys me to see a player with enormous quality like Mexes come in for such criticism for a bad game,Ã¢â‚¬Â Zizou wrote on his website.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Mexes is part of the future of the French team and he could wear Les Bleus’ shirt for 10 years.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Yet instead of offering him support, people try to get him out. That drives me wild.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I know Mexes as a man – we aren’t friends but he has lots of qualities and he can be like Laurent Blanc, Lilian Thuram and William Gallas.Ã¢â‚¬Â
