Trezeguet glum about his Euro 2008 prospects

ROME, Feb 2 (Reuters) - Juventus striker David Trezeguet said he is unlikely to be at Euro 2008 because France coach Raymond Domenech does not have faith in him.

'I have given an important contribution to the national team, but the conditions no longer exist to continue, because this coach has made other choices,' Trezeguet, Serie A's top scorer with 15 goals, told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

'So I would not bet a euro on my presence at the European championships.'

The forward said he turned down a place in Domenech's squad for two friendlies in Spain next week because he believed he would be used in Tuesday's 'A' fixture with Democratic Republic of Congo, rather than in Wednesday's first team game against Spain.

'I would like to be useful but I can't do that as a fifth-choice forward, like I was at the last World Cup,' said Trezeguet, who was also part of the France team that won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000.

'Two months locked inside waiting for someone to get hurt -- it's not for me.'

He added: 'It's also a question of motivation. I would have gone to the end of the world 10 years ago, but not now at 30, after everything I have done and continue to do.'
