Disgraced Rennes duo back with first team

  •  

RENNES, France (AP) -Rennes players Yann M'Vila and Chris Mavinga are back with the first team after being dropped and made to train with the youth team for eight days for disciplinary reasons.

M'Vila and Mavinga were among five members of France's under-21 squad who went to a nightclub between two playoff games for the 2013 European Championship.

Rennes coach Frederic Antonetti says no new sanctions will be imposed by the club regardless of what the French Football Federation's disciplinary commission decides.

The duo faces a hearing along with their three international teammates on Nov. 8.

M'Vila and Mavinga, along with Antoine Griezmann, Mbaye Niang and Wissam Ben Yedder, went out in Paris before the return match against Norway on Tuesday, when France lost 5-3 to end their qualification hopes.
