Karim Benzema doesn’t want to attend Argentina-France final, what will blame striker Didier Deschamps

Karim Benzema, who has been injured since the start of the World Cup, will not be able to inspire his teammates at the Stade Lusail during the Argentina-France final. According to RMC, Karim Benzema turned down Emmanuel Macron’s invitation to board the presidential plane to attend the final. A result that could show the rift between the Real Madrid striker and the France team.


Indeed, according to L’Equipe, communication has now broken down between Karim Benzema and the Blues’ management. Since his package on November 19, the topic of Karim Benzema has often been a hot topic. Asked about the possibility of Karim Benzema returning for the final, Ousmane Dembélé replied: “I don’t know. I’m not the coach. I believe Benzema is injured. »

Still on Didier Deschamps’ roster, Karim Benzema could make a repeat appearance during this World Cup. But as L’Equipe explains, Benzema wanted to stay in the tricolor team to recover and thus have the chance to compete at the World Cup. It would have been surprising if another player didn’t replace him then. Now, communication between the player and the French staff is broken.

So, Benzema would not have really appreciated the management of his physique by the tricolor medical staff, especially during the session the day before he tore his quadriceps.

For their part, Christopher Ngungu, Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante and Presnel Kimpembe will support the French team against Argentina in Doha.
