Olympique Marseille left-back Bouna Sarr has denied French media reports that he is in Guinea.
Sports newspaper L'Equipe on Friday reported that the defender was in Guinea despite reports that he had turned an invite by Didier Six to play for Syli National.
Sarr posted a video on Twitter in his Marseille home as France comes to terms with lockdown due to the deadly coronavirus pandemic. Reports had indicated that he had fled the lockdown in France for his parents' home country.

Sarr was born in France to a Senegalese father and a Guinean mother. He qualifies to represent France, Senegal and Guinea. He is currently plying his trade at Marseille.
In 2014, he was called up by the Guinea national team in but he did not play for them. In late April 2018, he was approached by the Senegal national team and turned down the offer. He is hoping that Didier Deschamps will invite to Les Bleus.
He had been courted by Six to play for Guinea but has been coy about committing his international future to the African nation as he awaits on a possible invite to world champions.
