Karim Benzema returned to training this evening at Real Madrid City after making a statement to the French authorities in Versailles.
The Real Madrid C. F. president, Florentino Pérez, held a meeting with the player in which he gave him his full support and expressed his confidence that his actions were in good faith and that he is completely innocent.
The club values and recognises the professional commitment, the displays of camaraderie with his team-mates and the impeccable attitude he has shown as a core member of the first team squad for the more than six seasons that he has been a part of Real Madrid.
If you haven’t yet seen Dirty Tackle’s brilliant skewering of Karim’s latest WTFuckery, I highly recommend it.
And yesterday, Arbeloa posted his support on Instagram. Perhaps not the smartest thing to do, but he believes in his friend and is sticking up for him so you have to give him that.
That said, the club also expressed some support on social media.
