RENNES, France (AP) – Rennes has dropped two players who were among a group of five from France's under-21 squad who went to a nightclub between two playoff games for the 2013 European Championship.
Rennes says midfielder Yann M'Vila and center half Chris Mavinga have not been included in the squad to face Montpellier on Saturday. The club says it ''can no longer tolerate irresponsible behavior from certain players.''
Rennes ordered both players to train with the youth team.
M'Vila and Mavinga, along with Real Sociedad's Antoine Griezmann, AC Milan's Mbaye Niang and rising Toulouse star Wissam Ben Yedder, went out in Paris before the return match against Norway on Tuesday, which France lost 5-3 to end their qualification hopes.
