Report: Ice Age between Benzema and Deschamps

French superstar Karim Benzma missed the World Cup due to injury. The footballer of the year would have been fit again for the final, but played no part in the plans of national coach Didier Deschamps. Apparently there is an Ice Age relationship between Deschamps and Benzema.

Karim Benzema is just one of many injured French superstars who missed the World Cup in Qatar due to injuries. This year's Ballon d'Or winner was at least in the squad for the tournament, so theoretically he could have played in the final. That Deschamps trusts the players who have fought their way to the final and not bet on Benzema at the last minute , is understandable. Nevertheless, there is probably more to the non-nomination of the striker, who did not travel to the final in Qatar despite an invitation.

As L'Equipe reports, there has been no contact between Benzema and the coaching staff since Benzema's departure from Qatar just before the tournament. It could be heard from those close to Benzema that the superstar did not agree with Deschamps' training intensity. Benzema was also concerned about the treatment he received for his injury. Despite his injury, Benzema wanted to stay with the team so that he could come back when he was back in action. Deschamps is said to have sent the 34-year-old home. This is said to have led to a break in the relationship, according to L'Equipe "something broke".
