The FFF and Deschamps filed a complaint with a Paris court on Friday over model Anara Atanes’s twitter tirade, which came after her boyfriend Samir Nasri was left out of the French World Cup squad.
Deschamps and the FFF are suing Atanes for public insult and lodged a complaint with the Paris high court as civil parties.
Deschamps said the 41-time capped Nasri didn't fit his need for a squad player for the June 12-July 13 World Cup finals in Brazil, adding that his performances for English Premier League champions Manchester City had been better than those for France.
But after Nasri was left out Atanes took to twitter to voice her outrage tweeting the now infamous words “F**k France and f**k Deschamps! What a shit manager!”
Fuck france and fuck deschamps! What a shit manager!

Atanes then went on to slam France as "a nation of racists" in a further tweet which appears to have since been deleted.
By Wednesday the model, was clearly showing some remorse and perhaps regret for blasting a whole nation.
“I apologize if I offended anyone from France, My tweets were not aimed at the nation as a whole,” she said.
I apologize if i offended anyone from france, My tweets were not aimed at the nation as a whole.

For Deschamps and the FFF however the damage seems to have been done.
"The words are insulting and unacceptable and they attack the dignity of the person and function of coach," Didier Deschamps’ lawyer told Le Parisien on Friday.
