An echo therefore to the scene which has caused a lot of talk for a few hours. This was captured in the dressing room corridor at Borussia-Park before returning to the field for the second half of the match between Borussia Mönchengladbach and Real Madrid (2-2), Tuesday in the Champions League. So we see Benzema talking discreetly but audibly with Mendy by throwing him: “He’s doing anything, loose the attacker. Brother, don’t play with him, my mother’s life. He plays against us. “
Present a few meters from the two French, Vinicius seems the target of this speech. On their return to the field, Benzema and Mendy also discussed with the left winger, again very disappointing in Germany. He received the worst reviews from the Spanish press after the meeting.

Benzema, he closed the gap at the end of the match before Casemiro equalized in added time to snatch a draw in extremis. If the French striker does not personally target Vinicius in his remarks, he has looked for him very little in the field. According to Opta, he did not even send her any pass in the second half after the locker room episode. He had only found it three times in the first act.
