Karim Benzema has come out to defend his comments he made about Olivier Giroud during a live broadcast on Social Media.
The 32-year-old has been criticized for describing himself as Formula 1 and Giroud as Karting.
“Don’t confuse Formula 1 with karting, I’m Formula 1,” he said in response to the question about Giroud. Benzema said replying to a question about the French Striker.
According to Marca in a video released on Instagram, the former Lyon striker said
“some people only took away things about Giroud and Formula 1 [from the live broadcast], but they didn’t remark what I said about what he’d brought to the French national team,”
“They only focused on that, on what I said about Formula 1 and karting, but it’s what I think and it’s the truth.
“Look, if I was asked about R9 (Ronaldo Nazario), then he would be the Formula 1 and I would be the kart. Short and simple.”
Oliver Giroud replaced the Real Madrid striker in the French National team, once the forward was not called up the Didier Deschamps.
