Frenchman Karim Benzema, Real Madrid forward, has been declared this Sunday as the best French player abroad by the Union of French Professional Players (UNFP). Benzema, who already received this award in 2019, has been chosen ahead of the meta Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), N ‘Golo Kanté (Chelsea), Ousmane Dembélé (Barcelona) Y Ferland Mendy (Real Madrid), the other applicants.
The Real Madrid player, who wants to win the league title on the last day against Villarreal, has posted a photo on his social networks posing with the trophy that has arrived in the last hours at his home in the Spanish capital.
This award can have several meanings beyond the purely football. From the French players’ union, with this decision, have clearly positioned themselves in the tough battle that Benzema and Deschamps continue and the censorship that exists from the French Federation after the incident with his former partner Valbuena.
Social networks have quickly insisted on this argument. The French players want Benzema in the Eurocup, once they consider him the best player in this country abroad, and more so knowing that the other applicants are fixed on the lists of the coach who led the French to the World Championship in 2018 in Russia. Tomorrow Deschamps will give the list of summoned for the Eurocup in which the Real Madrid player, Karim Benzema will not be.
