After the controversy after the exchange between Benzema and Mendy at halftime in the Champions League match against Mönchengladbach, Vinicius again addressed this episode in an interview.
Last October, a discussion between Karim Benzema and his teammate, Ferland mendy, was filmed in the hallways of the Borussia Park changing room at halftime of the Champions match between Mönchengladbach and Real Madrid (2-2). In the images we could see the tricolor forward telling the left back not to make more passes to Vinicius : « He does what he wants. Brother, don’t play with it! The life of my mother. Play against us », Benzema had launched. This case had obviously fattened the cabbage and ran the risk of crystallizing relationships between players.

Benzema is one of the players who defended me here, he did everything he could to help me when nobody knew me and for the last two and a half years. The outsiders don’t know what really happened. At Real Madrid, the smallest things explode disproportionately in the media “Explained the end.
