Speaking in an interview with Le Parisien, France 2018 World Cup winner Adil Rami discussed his desire to see Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema back in the national team.
On Didier Deschamps:
His capacity to put players together to make the best team (is his strongest suit). And not only to take the best players. I have observed him a lot. He pays attention to cohesion above everything. But I want to say something.
“It is so frustrating not seeing Benzema in this team. Saying that, is not saying something against Olivier Giroud. We also need Giroud because he is a goalscorer. But if there was a reconciliation with the manager, it would be fantastic to see Benzema in blue again. It is important for Karim to win a major tournament. It is too silly this story. If public apologies have to be made, or Karim has to make a step towards the coach, well then do it Karim. Think about France!”
