‘Benzema crossed the line’ – France boss Deschamps still hasn’t forgiven Real Madrid forward

The France coach remains angry at the 31-year-old, whose international exile looks likely to continue for some time yet
Didier Deschamps has indicated he is not yet ready to forgive Karim Benzema for comments made about the France coach, saying the Real Madrid forward had “crossed the line”.

Deschamps and Benzema have been at odds for several years over the striker’s continued omission from the France squad.

The 28-year-old was suspended by the French Football Federation (FFF) in December 2015 after an alleged blackmail attempt on France team-mate Mathieu Valbuena and has not been selected for Les Bleus since.
