More sports: Didier Deschamps uncovers a direct war with Karim Benzema for ‘deleting’ him in Qatar 2022
Three months after the disappointment of the French team for having lost the World Cup with Argentina, part of the reasons began to appear that ended the dream of a two-time championship for the French. Didier Deschamps, coach of the runner-up team in Qatar 2022, uncovered in the last few hours the ‘truth’ of what happened with Karim Benzema and his early exit from the tournament.
Regarding the version of the attacker who defends his physical condition, the coach said: “It insults us that they say that. There is only one truth and Karim knows it well. Karim joined on November 14 after a period of semi-inactivity at his club (His last game with Real Madrid was on November 2 against Celtic, he had played 26 minutes)”.
“He followed an individualized program, his return to collective training was postponed. He wasn’t 100 percent sure that he could start the first game against Australia. When Karim got injured, our doctor took him to the Aspetar clinic for an MRI,” he added.
Deschamps recounted one by one the hours leading up to making the decision on Benzema’s definitive absence: “Karim sent the results to one of his doctors in Madrid who also gave him his opinion. When he returned to the hotel, it was already past midnight. I met Karim in his room with our doctor who had come to give me the MRI report”.
“Karim is upset because this World Cup meant a lot to him. He told me that he was dead. In the best of cases, his return to training could not come before December 10. In his statement on his social network, he expresses his disappointment at having to leave, but he justifies this choice because of his concern to think about the team, ”he commented on the unprecedented conversations with the player.
“We were together for about twenty minutes. When I leave him, I tell him: ‘Karim, there is no rush’. You organize your return with him team manager. When I wake up, I realize it’s gone. It’s her decision, she won’t tell you otherwise, I understand and respect that”, he complemented.
Once Benzema heard what his former coach said, all his anger was removed and he could not remain silent: “But how daring,” he wrote in a post on his Instagram account. “Dear Didier, good night” and finally, forcefully he said: “you lie”, unleashing a complete war within the French team.
