The war of words between Nicolas Anelka and Lillian Thuram was kicked up a notch last night after the former striker responded strongly to his former team-mate's criticisms.
Speaking in a documentary on French TV last week about the last 20 years of French football, Thuram criticised Anelka's attitude when playing with the national team.
The famously moody attacker hit back on Facebook, where he compared Thuram to Samuel L Jackson's character in Django Unchained.
Jackson plays Steven in the film, a house slave who treats the other slaves very badly.
Anelka posted a picture of the character alongside Thuram, accompanied by the caption 'similar attitude, if you don't understand watch Django Unchained'.
