Many Madridistas could not help but wonder what the close friend of his and national teammate Karim Benzema considered Kylian Mbappe’s decision turning down a real Madrid transfer to be able to remain at PSG after using Real ‘s status to promote the own power of his and economic condition. Would Benzema consider Mbappe’s transfer approach a betrayal?
The real story is going to be the face-to-face meeting between Benzema and Mbappe on the French national team, though we did get to hear several of Benzema’s ideas in different interviews on Tuesday.
In an interview with El Chiringuito, Benzema initially sent a mature response:
“Did Mbappe betray you? Why? Everyone should concentrate on their respective jobs. Mbappe and also the other players don’t have any need to reference me. Every person is in control of his destiny. “Everyone does his thing.”
On certain levels, he’s every right to feel betrayed, though he in addition has every right to state that Mbappe made the choice. His fate is in the hands of his. Nevertheless, from a neutral standpoint, Mbappe must demonstrate a little courage & tell Benzema exactly why he did what he did. With the World Cup approaching, they should have a good, professional relationship, even if the dynamics of that partnership might change.
Because Benzema struck a different, much more caustic overall tone in an interview with Movistar+. He was not being offensive, though he did use some uncommon words:
“Mbappe? It is not the perfect time to broach the topic of small details.”
The significance is similar whether you translate it as “very little.” Mbappe’s move choice is irrelevant in the bigger scheme of things, based on Benzema. With the Champions League Final approaching – and everything on the series – it is so easy to find out why.
Nevertheless, you’ve to think that Mbappe’s choice wasn’t made lightly from a psychological standpoint. Benzema was a vocal supporter of Mbappe’s choice to go to Madrid and often praised him, even while Mbappe and Nasser Al Khelaifi were at odds.
When Benzema talks about Mbappe, you are able to sense the aggression of his. Although time is going to heal this particular wound, you are able to tell there’s a rift between them. Like several Madridistas, Benz is hurt and doesn’t need folks picking at this fresh wound..
