” It’s a crime ! »: Benzema’s brother denounces Gallardo’s tactics in Saudi Arabia Super Cup

They do not share the same tactical vision. After Al-Ittihad’s defeat against Al-Hilal this Thursday in the final of the Saudi Super Cup (4-1), Karim Benzema’s younger brother tackled Marcelo Gallardo. The coach chose to play the Frenchman on the left side, a decision that was not appreciated.

It was on the social network Instagram that Gressy Benzema expressed his dissatisfaction: “Karim Benzema, are you playing on the left now? It’s a crime ! That does not make sense. Football must be respected. » Posted in the evening, the publication is however no longer accessible.

Here is an additional episode to fuel the series of disagreements between Karim Benzema and his trainer. The Frenchman first aroused the ire of Marcelo Gallardo when he returned too late from his vacation in Mauritius last winter, officially due to a storm. In February, the Argentinian then decided to leave him on the bench during the round of 16 of the Asian Champions League, for “technical reasons”.

This Thursday evening against Al-Hilal, Karim Benzema did not score and his poor form continues. Al-Ittihad has a string of disappointing results.

This Super Cup final was also marked by an improbable scene with a player who received belt blows from a spectator at the end of the match.

After his team’s draw last week against Al-Tawoon (0-0), Karim Benzema shared his dismay: “I need help on the pitch. I can’t win a match alone. I need other players, lots of things.”
