Ghana-born Marcel Desailly says he feels safe in France despite the proposed military budget cut which has ruffled military chiefs.

President Emmanuel Macron is locked in a public battle with France’s senior general over military spending cuts as he faces his toughest opposition yet to proposed austerity measures.

The dispute threatens to become a political crisis after General Pierre de Villiers, the highly regarded chief of staff, stepped down.

But the 48-year-old former French international says he feels safe in the European country.
