We should try to remember the last time Noël Le Graët was interviewed without being asked a question about the Benzema case.
It was in any case not Tuesday evening at the invitation of the president of the French Football Federation on the set of the Téléfoot channel.
“Is it possible to see Karim Benzema with the blue jersey again?
Who can deny that he is a very good player?
Everyone knows he is an exemplary player.
I have always respected this boy.
The player is wonderful.
It has just had an exceptional year, he said in the preamble.

🔥 “Who can deny he's a great player? He just had an exemplary season. Justice is a bit slow.”
♾ @Benzema banned forever in @equipedefrance?

“If we are logical, Didier will be there until 2022, at least.
I'm not sure he'll take Karim back, it's getting difficult.
Justice also has a negative role in this career.
Four years, even if it's a big deal, it's a bit long, "he continued, alluding to the Mathieu Valbuena sextape affair in which the Madrilenian is suspected of" complicity in the attempt of blackmail ”.
PSG - OM: For Noël Le Graët, "racism does not exist, or little, in football"
"There is a real omerta on the subject" ... Is football still plagued by problems of racism?
