The return of Benzema

“It is not what concerns me now, it is not something that is in my head. They know your situation and the time you need to recover. I spoke to him after he left. I don’t know where you want to go with that question. I take care of the 24 players that are there. I don’t know, if he wants to imagine, talk, debate … I am not going to comment on matters that concern our daily routine ”.


“There are two games and they are able to see him, what he can do and very well, in a role that is going very well for him. He is physically and mentally well and has also always had a great influence on his game. That allows him to be in defensive and offensive phase”.

The new generation

“Some don’t have international experience, but they all have the potential to be here, they play in big clubs, the quality they have… A group is always a good mix between quality and many other things, with young people and others with more experience”.

Changes in the third game

Left back Camavinga

“It’s easier for him to ask me if he’s going to play, although I can’t ask him. I have other options. Rabiot has played there, Koundé… Eduardo can do it, he has also done it as a central defender, he is not a specialist in that position like the others”.
