No risk taking for Benzema
He was not part of La Liga against Cadiz, and for good reason. Not 100% yet, Karim Benzema has once again passed his turn, and will not play again with Real Madrid until December. From now on, the Frenchman is turned to the World Cup with the France team, after having had confirmation of their selection this Wednesday by Didier Deschamps.
Except that his state of health somewhat worries supporters of the Blues, and annoys those of Real Madrid. Overwhelmed by the Barca in the standings, the people of Madrid would need their striker to keep up the pace and not be left behind by the Catalans who have returned perfectly to the title race. “With the World Cup coming up, he didn’t want to take any risk, however small. It pisses us off but we understand it”explains an internal source of the club to RMC Sports.
He will be fine in Qatar
In addition, this source confirms that Karim Benzema will be ready and 100% to play in Qatar with the France team. “He will be ready, everything will be fine“, she assures. However, the latest results of Real Madrid are not at best, and the absence of the Ballon d’Or 2022 is not foreign to it. Undefeated for a long time this season, the team of Carlo Ancelotti finally failed against Leipzig in the Champions League with being defeated on Monday on the lawn of Rayo Vallecano (3-2).
Benzema manages himself while waiting for the World Cup, which is not to the taste of former Real players like Guti, who has not hidden his bitterness at seeing the Frenchman out of it in recent weeks. “I don’t understand. I see Messi playing with PSG and Lewandowski with Barcelona. And almost all players, within the limits of the possible. Of course, there is a risk of not being able to go to the World Cup, but you have to assume it. You can’t leave your team behind“said the former Spanish midfielder. Good news for the Blues, right?
