On Tuesday, TF1 announced that they would be airing an exclusive interview with Karim Benzema on Wednesday in their 20:00 local time new bulletin. But Le Monde’s publication of the player’s testimony this morning has plunged this decision into doubt.
It is rumoured that there are some inconsistencies with Benzema’s testimony and his version of events that he gave in the pre-recorded TF1 interview.
The programmes team will make a decision about whether or not to go ahead with airing the interview in an editorial meeting at 16:00 local time. Most probably, the interview will be aired anyway.
