During the 2010 World Cup, Nicolas Anelka fell out with manager Raymond Domenech, which resulted in the France squad going on strike.
Anelka had been left out of the squad and the players decided not to take part in training as a result.
As newly appointed captain, it was reported by news outlets like the BBC that Evra was one of the instigators of this movement. He had been seen rowing with fitness coach Robert Duverne moments before the public training was supposed to take place. Domenech had to separate Evra and Duverne, before Duverne stormed off, throwing his accreditation badge to the ground.
France finished bottom of their group and Evra was banned from representing France for five games as a result of his actions.
Due to Evra's behaviour during that World Cup, current French manager Didier Deschamps has confirmed that Evra won't ever captain the team whilst he is manager.
Per Ian Holyman for ESPN:
He will never be with me, and he knows it. He knows why, but that doesn't mean he's not important. They are all important. He has a past. And some speak more than others. But even when it's good, it's not good.
