Moscow: Troubled French international footballer Yann M'Vila trashed his rented house before seeking refuge at the home of a teammate due to an ongoing conflict with his club Dynamo Moscow, reports in Russia said on Friday. The website LifeNews cited the owner of the house and a cleaner who claimed the midfielder ransacked his lodgings in the Moscow suburbs before leaving, with his agent saying he had gone to stay with his French colleague William Vainqueur.
The owner of the house contacted the police before accusing M'Vila of causing material damage and not paying his rent. LifeNews added that the incident was connected to a row between the player and the Moscow club. M'Vila, who has been playing for another Russian club, Rubin Kazan, was supposed to sign a contract with Dynamo but the deal is still to be finalised.
Dynamo's decision to reintegrate the Russian international midfielder Igor Denisov, who had been transfer listed after a row with the coach, has not helped M'Vila's case.
