THE French Football Federation has opened disciplinary proceedings against players Samir Nasri,Hatem Ben Arfa, Jeremy Menez and Yann Mvila for misbehaving at Euro 2012, the FFF said on Tuesday.
Nasri insulted a reporter after the 2-0 quarter-final defeat by eventual champions Spain while Menez did the same to captain Hugo Lloris.
Ben Arfa was involved in a dressing-room argument with Blanc and Mvila did not shake the coach's hand when he was replaced by Olivier Giroud against Spain.
Blanc declined to renew his contract following the team's defeat.
Le Graet also said the individual bonus money of €100,000 due to the entire squad for reaching the last eight in Poland and Ukraine had been "frozen".
