Sylvain Distin says he is at a great football club and has no regrets about not playing for his country.
The Frenchman insists that he has had a great career and wouldn’t make any changes if he had to relive it all again.
“People ask me sometimes if I’ve got regrets regarding me not playing for France and I don’t because look where I’ve got now,” said Distin.
“I’m 35, I’m in a great club, I enjoy my football, I’m fit, I feel good, there is a great atmosphere where I am; why should I regret?
“Maybe if I’d played for France I wouldn’t be here, I’d be at another club, I wouldn’t enjoy it, maybe I wouldn’t be so down to earth, maybe I’d have a big ego.
“I’m really happy with what I’ve got and I’m really happy with what I’ve done and if I had to do it all again, I’d do it exactly the same way.”
