Gallardo violently clashes with Benzema!


By: Manu Tournoux

Al-Ittihad coach Marcelo Gallardo made very harsh remarks against his star, Karim Benzema.

French striker Karim Benzema recently left his club Al Ittihad. Officially, it’s to treat his foot injury. However, on the Al-Jeddah side, his defection was very poorly received.

Gallardo can’t take Benzema anymore

KB9 did not participate in the Saudi Pro League match against Al Taee on Saturday. Previously, he had also missed two training sessions. To get treatment, he left the country to return to France.

Benzema’s actions angered coach Marcelo Gallardo, who declared on Friday, according to the TribalFootball website: “He may be in disagreement with the club (…) but that does not excuse him because he is not making any effort.”

A big dig, a public one at that, and which may not please the former Madrid player too much. Since his arrival on Saudi soil, he has increased his arm wrestling with his coaches. As a reminder, he had already caused the departure of former coach Nuno Espirito Santo.

Benzema closed his account on social networks this week, after suffering insults from supporters following his disappointing performance during the beating inflicted by Al Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo’s team.
