By: Manu Tournoux

Daniel Riolo has expressed big doubts about the current level of Karim Benzema.

Having gone into exile in Saudi Arabia last summer, Karim Benzema could see himself taking part in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The French striker recently made this known. “The Olympics? Why not, of course, it could be great! »thus released the 2022 Ballon d'Or to the L'Equipe channel.

For his part, Thierry Henry, who will lead the French team at the Olympics, is not opposed to the idea of ​​convening the “Nueve” for the major sporting event of the planet, like the president of the FFF Philippe Diallo. “The door is open for everyone”said the Espoirs coach on Wednesday at a press conference.

“No one knows what form he is in”

However, a potential selection of Benzema for the Games does not excite everyone. Starting with Daniel Riolo, who did not mince his words towards the 36-year-old striker.

“No one knows what form he is in since he left the World Cup (in Qatar) in the middle of the night, launched the famous columnist on the airwaves of RMC. He's been in trouble for a year and a half and hasn't played much. (His statistics with Al-Ittihad) are nothing! We don't know anything about him. » The decision belongs to Thierry Henry, but also to his club, which is not obliged to release the former Lyonnais.
