While the Spanish press assured on Wednesday that Karim Benzema would be in Doha on Sunday to take part in the World Cup final, the situation would be somewhat different.
Three days before the World Cup final, Karim Benzema continues to get people talking. However, the Golden Ball had to lose even before the start of the World Cup in Qatar, as a result of an injury to the right thigh. But since then the former Lyonnais has resumed training with Real Madrid and some dreamers even envisioned him returning to the Blues.
Much to his delight, after the qualification of his troops against Morocco, Didier Deschamps was left having to once again bring up the subject of Benzema. However, one subject was quickly swept away. “Pfff… I’d rather not even answer you. Come on, next question thus evacuating the tricolor coach.
Benzema upset with Deschamps?
According to the Spanish press, Karim Benzema could still be present in Doha on Sunday to encourage the Blues. Indeed, Real Madrid would have authorized him to go to Qatar to participate in the final and be closer to the Blues, the one who will be among the world champions in the event of the coronation of the French team. According to RMC Sport, however, KB9 would not have made the request to Carlo Ancelotti, and therefore no decision has been made in this direction.
And according to the Spanish media Relevo, the chances of seeing Karim Benzema are very small. the French striker would hardly have liked Didier Deschamps’ words about him and more generally about the lack of support from the French Football Federation following his injury. He has nevertheless maintained ties to the tricolor group, as evidenced by his regular exchanges with his Real Madrid teammates, Aurélien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga.
