Clichy has consistently been overlooked for the left-back spot in favour of his cross-city rival, Manchester United's Patrice Evra, under both Deschamps and his predecessor Laurent Blanc.

He played three full games at last summer's European Championship but has since fallen out of favour again, featuring in only one of Les Bleus' five World Cup qualifiers to date.

And the 27-year-old told Le Parisien: "I deserve my place. When Deschamps replaced Blanc, I was hoping things would change.

"I don't feel I have had the opportunity to prove I am number one. If I had done something wrong, I could understand it."
