For a week, the case of the Real Madrid striker has returned to the fore. Asked about Karim Benzema’s package at the 2022 World Cup, Didier Deschamps gave his version, quickly denied by the captain of Real. Then, Karim Benzema announced that he was releasing his version “for the people” soon, before evacuating the subject, like the tricolor coach.

On TF1Didier Deschamps made the decision to continue on this path, avoiding the slightest shocking phrase: “I am not in the controversy. I was brought to speak to say what had happened. But that’s a thing of the past for me. Today what is important is what is in front of us with the 23 players that I have selected, in whom I have confidence in relation to the two games that we have to play”.

Moreover, according to The Parisian, while a tribute will be paid to the neo-retirees of the Blues (Hugo Lloris, Raphaël Varane, Steve Mandanda) next Friday, at the Stade de France, on the sidelines of the meeting against the Netherlands, Karim Benzema, guest, should miss On call. The Madrilenian would have decided to decline the invitation, while the tension with the coach is high.

Deschamps dots the i’s for a newcomer

Always on TF1, Didier Deschamps wanted to clarify his intentions regarding Wesley Fofana. Called up for the Blues for the first time on Thursday, the 20-year-old Chelsea defender could claim Ivory Coast: “What do you have to do to be selected? It goes through confirmation through what they do with us and through what they are going to do with their club. I have never selected a player to prevent him from making another choice. Today it is there. Afterwards, it’s always as I tell them, to those who come, it’s to come back.

Especially since a summons to the French team does not prevent a player from changing his mind, like Houssem Aouar recently, or Aymeric Laporte in the past.
