  • Karim Benzema Real Madrid

Initially sidelined due to his name being caught up in an ongoing French police investigation into alleged extortion of his global teammate Mathieu Valbuena, Benzema has remained absent despite Deschamps since insisting the forward was still in his thoughts.

Benzema ended up trading Lyon for the Bernabeu in a £38 million deal and Owen got his move to Old Trafford, but has since been made an global ambassador for Liverpool, which has infuriated the club's fanbase.

A pair of FIFA Club World Cups are also in the trophy cabinet. "There were stories before, with the sex tape affair, and that could be it, but personally, what is outside sports should be left it out".

KARIM BENZEMA has revealed how he was forced to call an hour-long meeting with former boss Jose Mourinho during their time at Real Madrid.

"As long as Deschamps is coach, I will not have the chance to return to the national team", he intimated. You mustn't be silly, though. "I'm a football player, you're my manager, I respect you, respect me as a player". It's not a question of calling him or not.

"I told him what I had to say, which took an hour". There are some that I come across and it's always good to see them. Even if he's someone I respect, after a while, I started to lose it.

In the summer of 2009, the former Liverpool striker made a shock move to Old Trafford, but it would never have materialised if Alex Ferguson had been successful in his attempt to swoop for Lyon forward Benzema, who switched instead to Real Madrid.

Benzema also spoke of his playing relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, while insisting that the Portuguese attacker's "selfishness" is not an issue.

" Ronaldo and I, we get on well".

Benzema has scored nearly 200 goals across all competitions for Real Madrid. "He likes scoring goals, I love playing with him".

"If I don't touch the ball, but I score in the 90th minute, I'm disgusted".

"[Ronaldo] is more selfish than me, but that's normal", Benzema explained in an interview with Canal+, as reported by the Marca.
