Denmark head coach Age Hareide has mocked France midfielder Paul Pogba and labelled the Les Blues team as ordinary ahead of their meeting at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The Danes will face Didier Deschamps’ men in a group game on June 26 in Moscow.
Hareide stated that Pogba is not a leader and is obsessed with flashy haircuts.
“He played against Manchester City with his hair dyed blue and white, maybe he’ll have it red and white to play us,” Hareide told Danish newspaper Jylland-Posten.
“Damn it, he cares so much about his appearance…”
The 64-year-old also claimed he has no fears about facing a squad who have players from all the big European leagues.
“Yes, yes, they have talent but they have to play as a team!” he declared.
“But each of these players will mostly want to shine on a personal level.
“As a team, France has sometimes failed. When they have done well, it is because they had a great player to lead them, like Zinedine Zidane, who kept them all together.
“They don’t have a player like that at the moment. Is Kante the one? no. Paul Pogba, he has highs and lows.
“The big teams at the World Cup are the best. But not France. I don’t believe in this team.
“We are going to face them and I will be damned if we don’t give them a hard time. I saw them against Sweden in June last year in Stockholm and I didn’t think they showed they were anything special.”
