Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti has come out to rubbish claims that Karim Benzema is protecting himself for the World Cup. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the Frenchman has definitely tried to play a couple of times this season, but he has not been able to fight off the discomfort he feels in his injured leg.
Ancelotti added that Benzema is always the first to be disappointed when he is not playing for Real Madrid.
His words, “He’s tried [to play], but he hasn’t been able to come back with this discomfort. It isn’t much. He’s tried to be available and he hasn’t been able to.”
“Karim is the first to be disappointed. He’s going into playing a World Cup without the minutes he needs to be in good condition. He’s had a problem, it isn’t serious, he’s been working individually but his feeling to play a game hasn’t been good. Karim himself is the most disappointed, because he’s going to play a World Cup, as Ballon d’Or winner, without many minutes in his legs.”
