It was a huge surprise, wishful thinking for some, a fantasy for others, but as the day went on, the hypothesis gained weight. However, we had to wait to see Didier Deschamps announce his list of 26 elements left to play the Euro with the Blues to be sure. And finally, Karim Benzema, almost six months later, was back.
” It did us good to discuss, exchange and have a lot of things to say to each other. I always got along well with him and after three minutes everything was back to normal. While it’s been more than five years since we met », Explained the Real Madrid striker to The team very recently. But this Wednesday, it was Didier Deschamps’ turn to discuss the reunion at Clairefontaine between the two men.
Deschamps will not give details
” It is a non-event. That it interests outside, yes. He is happy to be there. Even though it’s been a long time, he has found his marks and with the 21 others too. I’m not going to do anything in particular. He knows very well and he said it, he comes in a group that knows himself and that he knows. He has his place, just like the other players “, Began by explaining the coach in a press conference.
But of course it didn’t stop there and it was relaunched: “ Karim said how he felt, too. I will not be precise. As I told you, you are fond of having details, it will not come from me, not from Karim either, for the moment. If he wants to, he can. My decision comes from the fact that everything went well. I have a group to manage, he was in this group, he is there again, here is the situation “. We are still impatient to see KB9 again with the blue jersey on our shoulders.
