Karim Benzema ‘WON’T attend World Cup final’ after France sent him home with injury ‘needing just three days treatment’

FRANCE striker Karim Benzema will reportedly not be at the World Cup final due to his treatment from manager Didier Deschamps.

The Real Madrid star has missed all of the tournament in Qatar after he suffered a thigh injury during the team’s first training session in Doha.

The French have not missed Benzema, however, as they have battled their way to their second successive World Cup final.

They will be taking on Lionel Messi’s Argentina side on Sunday, but according to Spanish outlet Libertad Digital it is suggested that Benzema will not be flying out for the match.

The outlet claims that he is furious with Deschamps, who reportedly sent him home due to his injury.

It is also said that the 34-year-old is not pleased with the comments from the manager made during press conferences.

Deschamps dismissed questions over whether or not Benzema would be able to play in the final.

He said: “I don’t really want to answer that question, next question.”

The striker has been in training with Real Madrid and only needed three days of treatment at the club’s training facility.

Benzema is still registered in the France World Cup squad, so would be able to play for them if he was called upon.


Some of the player’s anger towards the boss has come after he was suggested to have been told to leave the French squad, as Deschamps reportedly told him: “What a pity Karim that you have to leave”.

Benzema has since played for Real Madrid in a friendly match against Leganes in which Los Blancos drew 1-1.

It is thought that if he was recalled to the France team that his club would not stand in his way of going back to Qatar.
