Samir Nasri's girlfriend has launched an expletive-laden attack on Didier Deschamps after the France manager omitted the Manchester City forward from his World Cup squad.

British model Anara Atanes labelled Deschamps a "s*** manager", demanding that he show "respect" to Nasri in a series of angry Tweets.

Nasri, who lifted his second Premier League trophy with Manchester City on Sunday, was banned for three matches by the French FA after ranting at reporters during France's ill-fated Euro 2012 campaign. The 26-year-old has played for his country just six times since that tournament and in a recent interview appeared resigned to watching this year's World Cup on television.

Atanes appeared with Nasri after the final whistle at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday after City secured their second Premier League in three years with a 2-0 win over West Ham. Nasri scored the opener as City took the victory they needed to finish two points clear of Liverpool at the top of the table.
