Florentino Pérez: “That Benzema does not go with France is a waste”

Karim Benzema will meet five years in 2021 without being called up with the French team. The Real Madrid forward has not been summoned by Didier Deschamps since the incident he had with Mathieu Valbuena regarding the alleged crime of extortion that is pending trial. In an interview with Europe 1, Florentino Pérez considered it a waste that the forward is not summoned with Les Bleus.

“Karim Benzema is a unique player and I think his absence with the French team is a great loss for them. Deprive yourself of the presence of one of the best 9 in the history of the French national team and the world It is a situation that nobody can understand ”, assured Florentino Pérez when asked by the forward.

The Real Madrid president later noted that Karim Benzema is a Real Madrid legend and that he has earned the consideration and affection of all fans. He also wanted to highlight the exemplary behavior of the former Olympique de Lyon player, associating his name with legends of the white team such as Raúl, Cristiano Ronaldo or Di Stéfano.
