The ex-Ballon d’or George Weah has taken this Thursday, the defence of Karim Benzema. One initiative in which the attacker of the Real is not remained insensitive.
The continued absence of Karim Benzema in the selection tricolor does much to react, and not only in France. Many personalities in football have expressed themselves on the subject, especially to the defense of the front-center of the Real. This is particularly the case of George Weah. The ex-great striker africa has advocated for the “banned” has a second chance. A position that the person has enjoyed.
Deschamps responds to Benzema
Weah, Golden Ball France Football, has expressed in an interview at RFI on Thursday. He did not go by four paths in arguing clearly in favour of a return in the Blue of the former Lyonnais. “With all that Benzema has done for the French selection, I think it deserves to return. It is necessary to discuss and talk about it with him. This is very important because it is a great player”, he said.
Deschamps ensures that the choice of not selecting Benzema is purely sporting. For Weah, that excuse is not at all the road. “I don’t know what people think of Karim Benzema, but to me it is a fully-featured player, very intelligent, very humble, and collective. It is a very fine person and I love. When Real Madrid plays, my player is Karim Benzema, he continues. It evolves to a position where he helps other people. When he started his career as a striker, he scored goals. The others are not stronger than Benzema even if they mark. Benzema, to him, it is mark”.
The reaction of Benzema in these few words is not being made to wait. In the evening of Thursday, few hours after the publication of the interview, he has published a twitter in which he thanked “Mister George”. A “thank you”, to which he has attached an emoji in the shape of a blink of an eye.
