Paris: France coach Didier Deschamps insisted on Monday he could not forget the racial slurs uttered by Eric Cantona concerning his selection choices and would pursue the Manchester United legend to the bitter end in court.

Cantona had accused his former international and club teammate of racial discrimination in his choice of players for Euro 2016, claiming Deschamps had snubbed Karim Benzema and Hatem Ben Arfa because of their "north African origins".

"It's unacceptable and I won't forget, I have made judicial arrangements and I'll go to the end," said Deschamps.
