Karim Benzema not expecting France recall

13 November 2017

And now the former England global has further angered the red half of Merseyside by revealing how he pleaded with Karim Benzema to join Real Madrid in the summer of 2009, as the Frenchman was one of Sir Alex Ferguson's top targets that year and signing him from Lyon would have prevented Owen from making his switch to Old Trafford.

"It could be that [the sex tape scandal], of course", Benzema told Canal+. "I'm a football player, you're my coach, I respect you, respect me as a player".

Benzema was one of the most sought-after strikers in world football in 2009 after starring for Lyon and France. It's been more than two and a half years, it doesn't take much to understand what is going on.

The survey also reported about 325,000 US students studied overseas in 2015-16, mostly in Europe. Indian students accounted for 17.3% of the total foreign students in the USA in 2016-17.

"It's not a matter of calling or not calling".

The 81-time capped global generally ignores such insults and gets on with his work, but, speaking in an interview with Canal Plus France today, Benzema revealed that one instance of criticism aimed in his direction during his early years at the Bernabeu left him with no choice but to speak up.

As Deschamps' exile of the forward continues it has become abundantly clear that Real's main central striker will not be playing at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Clayborn sacked Dak Prescott six times, setting an Atlanta record, and the Falcons snapped the Cowboys' three-game winning streak. Cleveland rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer passed for 232 yards and a touchdown and also carried seven times for 57 yards.

"I've got a lot to thank him [Benzema] for, he may not know", Owen revealed. Of course, I want to, don't be silly.

"I have no problems with any player in the France team, there are some that I come across and it's always good to see them, I'm not a disrupter, I have a public image that isn't good". I'm shy but if you make fun of me, I'll be straight. Even if he's someone I respect, after a while, I started to lose it.

Benzema's extended absence means he is yet to play alongside the prodigiously talented Kylian Mbappe, something he wishes had happened at Real Madrid this season.

Olivier Giroud says the trust of Arsene Wenger validates Arsenal stay
Ramsey has been a key player for Arsenal this season scoring three times in 10 Premier League appearances. At the end of my career, if I can say that I scored as many goals as him, I will be very proud.
