REAL MADRID | BENZEMA
Benzema crucial to any national team - Thiago Silva
The Paris Saint-Germain defender has told RTL that the Frenchman, who could miss Euro 2016, would be fundamental to any international outfit.
Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva believes that Real Madrid’s French striker Karim Benzema, who could miss this summer’s European Championship, would be a vital figure in any international side.
Benzema was suspended from the France team indefinitely in December after being placed under formal investigation for his alleged involvement in a plot to blackmail Les Bleus team-mate Mathieu Valbuena over a sex tape.
And Silva concluded: "I think he’d be a fantastic player for any team. I don’t know what [France coach Didier] Deschamps thinks about the situation, but I believe that he’s crucial."
