Deschamps does not forgive Benzema

The French coach does not forget that the Real Madrid forward accused him of having left him out of the team at Euro 2016 for racial reasons.

The French coach, Didier Deschamps, assured this Saturday that he continues without forgiving Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema after he accused him of racism five years ago. "I cannot forget it. When it is something about my choices as a coach, the tactics or the technical aspect, it has a place of being and for me it does not matter. The other is out of line, it affects my name and my family," he said. on the RTL station. The forward's statement came after being left out of those called up for Euro 2016: "Deschamps has succumbed to pressure from a racist part of France," the player said then.

Benzema has not been called up to the national team since October 2015, after being charged with an alleged blackmail, with a video of sexual content, to his teammate Mathieu Valbuena in the Bleus. With his criticism before the European Championship, the forward hinted that the coach had given up on including him in the team because of his Algerian origins. "Certain statements lead to verbal or physical aggression. I suffer the consequences. We cannot forget it. I cannot forget it and I will never forget it," concluded the technician this Saturday on the Gala radio station.
