FRENCH president Nicolas Sarkozy will today meet striker Thierry Henry to dissect the nation’s disastrous World Cup campaign.
Henry called Sarkozy himself to request a meeting after the team crashed out at the group stage amid bitter in-fighting.
Sarkozy yesterday met with his prime minister and sports minister to begin the inquest, after the France squad arrived home to a barrage of scathing criticism.
“Thierry Henry called the president from South Africa and told him he wanted to see him as soon as possible after his return to France,” said a government spokesman.
Former captain Patrice Evra, who was dropped for the final group game, is planning to reveal the extent of the behind-the-scenes conflict at a press conference this week.
