Jemmali rejects Tunisia
Bordeaux defender David Jemmali
Jemmali has turned down an offer to play for Tunisia
Bordeaux defender, David Jemmali, has reportedly declined an invitation to play for Tunisia.

Henri Michel called up the 27 year old player for next week's friendly against Norway in Tunis.

Michel, in charge of the Tunisian team going to the World Cup finals in Japan, has been looking for new players for his squad.

Tunisia performed poorly at the African Nations Cup in Mali, where they were eliminated in the first round.

Jemmali, born in France, was quoted as saying he is not interested to playing for the North African team.

It is not the first time that he has turned down an offer to play for Tunisia.

Jemmali declined an invitation by former national coach, Henri Kasperczak to play for the Tunisians at the last World Cup in France.

Jemmali was born in France and holds French nationality.
