A French program has published a conversation with Karim Benzema, the Real Madrid striker, asking his teammate Ferland Mendy not to pass the ball to Vinicius Junior, but Benzema put an end to this crisis.
All media attention was directed to the two champions on Thursday, between the two halves of the German match Borussia Monchengladbach and Real Madrid in the second round of the Champions League group stage:
French striker Karim Benzema and his Brazilian colleague Vinicius Junior.
The French Telefoot program published a conversation between Karim Benzema and his compatriot Ferland Mendy between the two halves of the Monchengladbach match,
which ended in a two-goal tie for the two teams.
According to that conversation, Benzema told Mindy:
“Vinicius does what he wants, don’t play with him, brother, he’s playing against us.”
Karim Benzema said those words to his colleague Ferland Mendy because Vinicius Joynor did not pass him any ball throughout his participation,
as well as his poor performance, especially in the first half of the match.
That conversation sparked a major controversy inside Real Madrid, coinciding with the players’ vacation on Wednesday.
The words of Karim Benzema caused a shock to Vinicius and his agent,
as the Brazilian winger considers the French striker his role model and mentor at Real Madrid.
On the contrary, Karim Benzema’s agents think that these things are very normal in the world of football.
Today, Thursday, Real Madrid players have resumed work in the sporting city of Valdebebas,
and the players took a morning training session in preparation for the Huesca confrontation
next Saturday in the eighth round of the Primera Liga at the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium.
Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior participated in the training naturally,
and the French decided to search for his Brazilian colleague and spoke with him for a short time about what happened and explained to him the reasons,
which helped end the crisis between the two Real Madrid attackers,
especially since they are fully aware that there is a big difference between professional and personal relationships.
