''I AM NOT A JIHADIST''! FORMER ARSENAL AND CHELSEA MIDFILEDER LASSANA DIARRA FORCED TO DENY THAT HE IS FIGHTING A JIHAD IN SYRIA
Former France international, Lassana Diarra has been forced to formally deny claims that he had become an Islamic warrior fighting in Syria.
Diarra who played formerly for Arsenal, Chelsea and Portsmouth, said he had never set foot in the war-torn country.
Eric Dupond-Moretti, a lawyer for the France international, said Paris-born Diarra 'denies in the most formal, the most categoric, the most absolute fashion that he has gone to Syria'.
