Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema will not return to the France squad before the 2022 World Cup final.
Benzema is still included in the 26-man squad, despite the injury that prevented him from participating in the tournament before kick-off.
The current Ballon d’Or winner has since recovered and there is talk of him returning to face Argentina on Sunday.
But Ok Diario reports that Benzema won’t even travel to Qatar to support the team.
Benzema has Real Madrid’s approval to travel if he wants, but he’s not thinking about it.
It is believed that the relationship between Benzema and the president of the French national team, Didier Deschamps, is not the best.
The player feels that as soon as Deshan had the chance, he dumped him.
While it is true that Benzema has not fully recovered from his muscle discomfort in the first training session, the coach called him out.
