Karim Djaziri, friend and adviser of Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, has accused the France national team coaching staff of lying about the superstar’s injury.
Karim Benzema returned to the France national team in May 2021 after two years of exile.
He was part of France’s World Cup after his talismanic performances for Real Madrid but suffered an injury setback just days before the kickoff.
Benzema remarkably returned to training with his club even before France completed their World Cup campaign.
Benzema, as it has been reported, did not leave Les Bleus camp in Qatar out of his own free will but was forced out of the squad by coach Didier Deschamps.
And immediately after the World Cup, the 35-year-old announced his retirement from international football.
“A week after his departure [from the France camp] Benzema resumed running and training, playing 30 minutes in a friendly with Real Madrid four days later. But, for Stephan, he could not take part in the tournament! Keep on lying, the truth is coming,” Djaziri wrote on Twitter.
