Noël le Graët right in his boots.

If the president of the FFF may have been shaken for a moment by the heavy conviction at first instance of Karim Benzema in the France team, he did not let it appear when he was joined by the team, reiterating his support for the tricolor striker.

"I'm happy with the player, he's behaving perfectly well"

"As far as the Federation is concerned, there is no change," explains Le Graët in L'



It remains selectable, while regretting this annoying file.

He did not play for several years for the France team.

This sanction does not change anything for me.

It is selectable.

“And not only while waiting for the verdict of the appeal brought by the player's lawyers in the wake.

"Even if he did not appeal, for me, it does not change anything," he continues.

He has the right to work.

I'm happy with the player.

It is efficient, it drives perfectly well.

Insofar as Didier wants to select him, the Federation will have no opposition.

There is no obstacle to his continuing to play for the France team.


Yet in 2016 ...

A position that will relieve the interested party and all football fans, but which does not lack spice, all the same, when we remember that the same Benzema had been excluded from the selection before Euro 2016 "until" so that the legal situation evolves ”, at a time when the presumption of innocence was essential.

In short, the Federation is not close to a pirouette in this file.
