In the wake of the defeat conceded on penalties by the Blues in the final at the World Cup, Benjamin Pavard’s behavior is at the heart of heavy revelations from journalist Romain Molina.
Four years after a World Cup in Russia, which will have inaugurated him as one of the darlings of the tricolor supporters, especially as a result of his incredible volley against Argentina in the round of 16, Benjamin Pavard lived a true nightmare in Qatar. Holder in the first match against Australia, the Bayern defender has really gone through the motions, and the punishment was not long in coming.
After a salty debriefing with Didier Deschamps, the former Lille resident took part in the rest of the competition screwed on the bench. Jules Koundé has become the number one option in the right lane and when it was necessary to breathe or preserve it, it was Axel Disasi, despite having very limited experience in the right back position, who was called by the coach tricolor. Disgrace was total for Benjamin Pavard. And according to Romain Molina, the Bavarian did not hide his resentment.
The mole in the locker room?
Benjamin Pavard would thus have allowed himself several remarks from the bench or in training towards his teammates, which the staff would have considered very inappropriate. On the bench, he would have repeated several times to Guy Stephan: “You wanna get him out of Lil Konde or not? He thinks he’s Pop Smoke with his shit chain. » What provoked another very stormy discussion with Didier Deschamps.
But the charges against Benjamin Pavard doesn’t stop there. The Munich defender is also believed to be under suspicion by some of his teammates to leak internal dressing room matters to the press due to his close relationship with certain journalists. What makes him “toxic” in the eyes of many French players who do not understand the gap between the performances of the Maubeuge native and the status he claims in the French team.
