France international Antoine Griezmann supports his teammate Olivier Giroud in a verbal battle with Karim Benzema for his talent in playing football.
Griezmann defended Giroud in a dispute with Benzema
Antoine Griezmann spoke out to protect Olivier Giroud after Karim Benzema compared the Chelsea striker to a mini race car.
“I couldn’t answer completely because I could get in trouble. But I love Giroud. He is a good player who helped us win the World Cup,” Griezmann wrote on Twitter.
Earlier on March 30, Benzema was controversial when comparing himself to his former teammate Giroud. On Instagram, the Real Madrid player said: “About Giroud, I simply tell the truth. But people don’t remember what I said about him, especially about what he contributed to the French team.
People only remember when I said I was a Formula 1 car (F1) and Giroud was a mini race car. But that’s what I thought, that’s the truth. Because now, if you compare me to R9 (fat Ronaldo): R9 is F1, and I’m a mini race car. That is so “.
For his part, Olivier Giroud immediately responded: “The only thing I can say about this is that I am a world champion, so it’s not bad for a mini race car.”
At the 2018 World Cup, Giroud’s failure to score does not affect the French team’s victory. In the role of striker, the 33-year-old striker plays an important role in creating space for Griezmann and Mbappe to shine.
The verbal battle between Benzema and Giroud began when the Real Madrid star compared himself to F1 racing cars, and considered Giroud as a kart, a car of the lower class. In response, the Chelsea striker emphasized the World Cup championship that Benzema has never won.
Benzema lost his place in France before Euro 2016
Benzema lost his place in France before Euro 2016 when he was accused of blackmailing teammate Mathieu Valbuena. “Number 9” missed the chance to go deep in both France’s most successful tournaments in more than a decade – into the Euro finals and to win the World Cup.
The removal of the team name is a pain for Benzema, who has always been shining in Real Madrid for the past ten years. The striker scored 241 goals in 501 matches for the Spanish team.
While Benzema was boycotted, Giroud stepped up from the bench. The striker who was once considered a “wood leg” at Arsenal scored 39 goals in 97 matches for the team, just behind Thierry Henry and Michel Platini.
