Since retiring from playing professional football Dugarry has worked as a high profile football pundit and commentator for French television stations Canal Plus and SFR Media.
He has often caused controversy with viewers for his biased opinions towards his former side Bordeaux.
In 2017, Dugarry was involved in a war of words with ex Manchester United player Patrice Evra after he criticised some of the defender’s performances during his punditry.
In an interview with former Arsenal defender William Gallas, Evra claimed that Dugarry’s football career benefited from his relationship with French legend Zinedine Zidane.
Evra said Dugarry was given preferential treatment with the national team over more talented players because of his relationship with Zidane that went back from their days playing together at Bordeaux.
In a bizarre attack he went on to state that Dugarry was “the only person in the world who knows the exact number of pubic hairs Zinedine Zidane has on his family jewels’.
Still working as a pundit and analyst, he also hosts his own two-hour football show called Team Duga on French radio channel RMC.
