The Curious Case of Yann M’Vila

Last game against Roma saw Yann M’Vila reacting furiously to his substitution by Roberto Mancini, the incident angered many Nerazzurri fans as he didn’t prove himself yet, or even contributed to anything with the team which raises concerns about his future with the club, and whether we should sign him permenantly or send him packing to his Rubin Kazan, Looking at his history a bit, you should tell us what do you think.

FOOTBALL : France vs Islande - match amical - 27/05/2012

Yann M’Vila, 4 years ago he was the hottest prospect in the french league, with teams like Arsenal, Liverpool and even Manchester United racing to acquire his signature, but Yann is no saint, as evidenced by his knack for appearing on news sites for all the wrong resasons. On the pitch, however, he uses his aggression to his benefit. Still, we have had our fair share of troublemakers and eccentrics. Do we really need more drama in the dressing room?

In 2010

M’Vila is said to have attacked a restaurant owner following a bout of road rage, while he was in court just two months earlier, to see a pair of prostitutes jailed for robbing him and a friend, after they were invited back to a hotel room before a match.

He was also involved in a furious training ground spat with fans earlier that season, when Rennes’ poor performances on the pitch saw some supporters storm the players car park, leading to the France ace confronting several members of the mob after one kicked a wheel on his car.

In 2011

The player was expelled from the French national team for reportedly organizing a night out while on duty breaking a curfew when he visited a Parisian nightclub with the French under-21 squad, He was motivated to move to Russia to escape the attention he had received at home, but he has found himself at the center of another scandal.

Then he was asked to sit out of a game for his team, following an altercation outside his home in Vern-sur-Seiche, in which he is said to have punched a 17-year-old boy during a heated argument, Which resulted in Rennes forcing him to train with the youth team.

In 2012

in November the french police detained a girl, who had been suspected of shoplifting. Further investigation found that the girl was 15 at the time of arrest and involved in prostitution. More importantly ‘explicit’ photos and text messages, discovered in her mobile phone, fed suspicions that some top football players, including M’Vila, could be connected to her.which proves his involvement with an under-age prostitute.

The defensive midfielder, was also suspended for one match after refusing to shake the hand of then head coach Laurent Blanc when he was substituted against Spain during Euro in that year.

This string of off field disciplinary issues have put all the then-looking-at-him teams off, even dimening much of the young talent shine, clouding his character, with plenty unimpressed that he’s been arrested three times in the past few years for various offences.

    Luckily its only a loan a he can be sent out the door at the end of the season. No need to spend more on him, terrible substitute for Cambiasso

  • Inter4Ever

    And they say osvaldo is bad

  • Philip

    it may be because he was passionate and desperate to prove himself, especially with little play time since his move. many player’s reactions are misinterpreted. its wise to wait for the season to end to make a full evaluation not just M’villa but also the whole squad. i personally think it not right to push this team to the edge just because Inter wants to play in Europe in matter of short time. Long term planning should be made by the Club so that the future of this team will always secure.

    His type of position is very important, do the players respect him or do they think he’s a crank. I don’t think he’s a true professional or has the right mentality like our cambiasso did. Mancini did not need that and m’vila knows it so I say fuck him m’vila out pls.

  • kuda

    Im still believe in him as well. But why there’s no progress since he came here. I mean he’s still overweight for me. If he’s serious, he should work harder to improve his physical attribute because he’s a damn good player wiith Rennes. But i wouldnt mind to send him back to russia, and change it with a more creative typical of dmf.

    actually M’Villa doing good, his position is deep so you can’t say he’s not contributed at all in team play but honestly lack of playing time could be the reason why he did those thing in the bench, any player would feel like that but the patience is somewhat the difference between this guy and the rest of the team (notable Andreolli), i still believe him.. i trust every Inter player, they need time, don’t judge them based what happens on 5 minutes only

    Lorenzo Crisetig is much better than these kind of medicore players.

    Hopefully with Mancio we would see our young products in Nerazzurro shirt more than before.

  • To be honest, this should have been written when we were signing him. We were all for his “bad boy attitude” when we first heard we were signing him, and I’ve seen plenty of comments from the site saying that they’re happy with his commitment and his steady growth back to form.

    He hasn’t been impressive on the field if you ask me (I was hoping for far more), but lets not make a big deal out of his reaction to the sub. For all we know, Mancio fixed that promptly considering his comment in yesterday’s press conference.
    Meanwhile, if he doesn’t do well, the solution seems simple. Keep calm and focus on more important things 😛

  • Dani Milekić

    If he will perform the way I believe he can and if the squad doesn’t suffer because of his actions he is welcome to do whatever the hell he wants if you ask me…

      You are not right mate. If he is causing controversials in the dressing room than he is better to leave. We do not know that, but I don’t what to see someone creating more pressure.
