Nantes stalwart Frederic Da Rocha has hit out at the club for offering him a derisory contract extension.
The versatile forward feels he is being pushed out of La Beaujoire after 11 years and 319 matches for the Ligue 1 club.
His current deal is set to end this summer, and it seems the ever-present player has played his last game for Les Canaris.
"The door is always open," Da Rocha told Ouest-France. "I am disappointed by their offer, but it is not over.
"I would like to talk to chairman Rudi Roussillon. Sending me such an offer is like telling me to leave.
"I have given everything to the club, if they don't want to talk to my agent then they can call me directly. I am not Zidane, but I deserve something."
At just 31 years of age the veteran still feels he can help Nantes build on their 14th-placed finish in the French top flight next season.
