first_imgIn a new episode of the battle between president Nöel Le Graët against Karim Benzema, the Real Madrid striker exploded via Twitter.The relationship that Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has with the French Football Federation president has never been great, Noël Le Graët has always criticized the player for letting down France in the past.The incident with Mathieu Valbuena cost Karim his place in Les Bleus and he hasn’t come back ever since, Benzema even lost the unique chance to become a World Cup champion last summer over the scandal that had a lot of people in France rooting against him.But one of the figures that was the most adamant about Benzema never playing for France again, was the FFF president Le Graët, who recently spoke to French journal Ouest-France about the Real Madrid player and he opened the old wound in public once again.The chairman spoke in a very condescending manner against Karim, a passive-aggressive tone that the player didn’t take well and sparked a quick response from him on social media.This is just a new chapter on the already controversial battle between the two, in which Karim Benzema has repeatedly expressed that he doesn’t want to be a part of.Le Graet cree que Benzema no volverá a la selección https://t.co/fdzINOoQJZ pic.twitter.com/6vaxFV8url— HTDeportes VE (@HTDeportes) October 10, 2018Le Graët seems quite salty against the former Olympique Lyonnais player, because he was widely considered as one of the most important offensive players of his generation in France, and he threw it all away because of that scandal.The reaction from Le Graët is the same that many French people have against Karim because they had a lot of hope deposited on his talent for the future.Fortunately for France, they won the World Cup without even needing Karim but the FFF president still seems adamant on coming after the striker even if the whole scandal is already in the past.“The Valbuena-Benzema affair had another episode last week, but it is still not over,” Le Graët said to Ouest-France.“It’s been three or four years. It should have been judged much faster and it is rotten for us.”“I have nothing against Karim, he has always behaved well in the [national] team, but I think he is finished with Les Bleus, particularly as he has been out of form for a while,” he added on that interview.“France have closed the door forever on Karim Benzema.

Do you feel guilty about something? Write to FIFA and let him play for another team and let’s see if he’s finished.”Karim Benzema instantly retweeted this, and he then proceeded to send his own personal message that we reported earlier this Wednesday.Noël vous aviez déjà mis un terme à la carrière internationale de @Benzema en juin 2018 vous remettez ça aujourd’hui tout en le dénigrant!Dans quel but?Vous vous reprochez quelque chose?Écrivez à @FIFAcom et laissez le jouer pour une autre sélection nous verrons s’il est terminé— KDjaziri (@KDjaziri) October 10, 2018The fact that the Real Madrid player still has to deal with the aftermath of his mistake with Mathieu Valbuena, is something that will unfortunately haunt him for the rest of his life due to all the expectation he generated since the beginning of his career.When he first started to play football as a professional, every single sports journalism outlet in France regarded him as the next Thierry Henry.At club level, Karim has enjoyed a lot of success with Real Madrid, but his time with the French National Team has been nothing but an endless nightmare that may never leave him alone.🇫🇷 FFF president says @Benzema “is finished with Les Bleus”https://t.co/lLejqY2nPL— beIN SPORTS USA (@beINSPORTSUSA) October 11, 2018What do you think about Noël Le Graët’s latest criticism about Karim Benzema?
