Benzema’s break-up with the French national team is complete. According to ‘El Larguero’, the Real Madrid striker and France had a falling out after Didier Deschamps found out that he had not told the whole truth about his physical state.

However, days after he announced his retirement from the national side, the Ballon d’Or winner unfollowed 15 of his teammates, including Aurelien Tchouameni, who is his teammate at Real Madrid.

Out of all the players in the World Cup 2022, the only ones to avoid the cut were Mbappe, Thuram, Varane and Camavinga. In fact, in the days before, it was revealed that Hugo Lloris and Griezmann were supposedly in favour of him missing the World Cup, according to journalist Romain Molina.

Finally, after minutes of going viral, the Real Madrid striker re-followed Tchouameni to end the controversy around both Real Madrid men.

In fact, it is worth noting that, in Benzema’s ‘following’ list, the midfielder’s name is the first to appear.
