Official Statement On Benzema’s France Suspension

10 Dec

It was announced today that Karim has been suspended from the French National Team for the duration of the investigation into his part in the Valbuena sex tape blackmail scandal. Real Madrid released a statement.


Official Announcement: Benzema

Real Madrid C. F. regrets, but respects the decision taken today by the French Football Federation to provisionally suspend Karim Benzema from the France national team, and wishes to reiterate once more its support for and confidence in the player.

I guess we should release an official statement as well and that’s “Benzema is an idiot for getting messed up in this shit on any level.”


– Lozil

    I’ve been seeing a few “innocent until proven guilty” comments around social media. While I fully agree with that philosophy, this isn’t about that. FFF made the decision to suspend him based on what’s best for the national team. They have to take into account that if he’s on the squad it could create a situation where other teammates feel they need to pick sides. Picking sides is bad juju and leads to things like France’s crashing out of 2010 World Cup.

    Honestly, whether he’s guilty of knowingly doing something or not, if this happened between him and, for example, Isco I’d expect Real Madrid to do the same thing. Otherwise, maybe Marcelo takes Karim’s side, but Pepe takes Isco’s side. In the end, as much as you have to stand by your players, the group dynamic is going to suffer if you keep him in the squad. I mean, shit… We see what standing by Mourinho’s decisions did to friendships in our squad.

    I love Karim, bad decisions and all. But he’s not the victim here, no matter his actual role in all of this. Valbuena is the only real victim. I hate that FFF had to do this, but it was the right decision.

        I had “awkward sauce” and “angry sauce” yesterday. Today I’m full of “truth sauce.” What else can I wax pessimistic on? LOL
