Speaking in a video published on Instagram, Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema sought to add clarification to comments he made about French international attacker Olivier Giroud, comparing him to karting.
“I told the truth, quite simply. What was not picked up was what I said about what he brings to the French national team. What was picked up was when I said I was Formula 1 and he was karting. That is what I think, that is the truth and it is like that. If you ask me in comparison to Ronaldo (Brazilian): he is Formula 1 and I am karting, it is just like that!”
