France coach Didier Deschamps revealed for the first time the reason why French striker Karim Benzema did not participate in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, and his departure from the team camp, a story that was ridiculed by Real Madrid’s top scorer.
Deschamps told the newspaper “Le Parisien” French, that Benzema told him that he was injured and not ready before the start of the World Cup, and he conducted tests at Aspetar Hospital, and when he returned to the hotel he was devastated because of the results of the tests that proved his injury, stressing that the World Cup meant a lot to him, which Karim expressed by saying ” He died”.
Follow Deschamps, who led France to the second final in a row, where they lost to Argentina on penalties, “We stayed together for about twenty minutes. I told him when I left him “Karim, there is no emergency. Your return can be organized with the team manager”When I woke up, I knew he was gone. It was his decision, he wouldn’t tell you otherwise, I understand and respect that”.
The French player and Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, also responded to the statements of the exiled director of the French national team, as he published a video through his account on the Instagram site, which is a snapshot of Deschamps’ speech, commenting on it. “What audacity” He added to it a symbol of a clown.
He also posted a video of the famous Frenchman Richie on Snapchat repeating “Liar, you are a liar”Benzema wrote “Holy Didier… Good night”.
