French don't make friends

10 June 2010 - 01:39

In stark contrast to the Danish team, who spent yesterday touring Knysna's Bongani township, the French stayed locked away at their exclusive Pezula Estate.

The former world champions are not making many friends on the Garden Route, where they appear to be ignoring everyone - including their own press corps of about 150 journalists.

One French photographer said: "We are angry with them because they do not give a good impression of France."

The team's unfriendly reputation was of little concern yesterday to the squad's spokesman, Francois Manardo, who said he was not allowed to talk officially with the media.
