Karim Benzema reflects on how he lost respect for Jose Mourinho

Karim Benzema reflects on how he lost respect for Jose Mourinho

Owen added, "I am grateful to Benzema for signing for Real Madrid, as if not, then I would not have played for Manchester United".

Benzema says they had only one major dispute - and it centred on an extraordinary press conference given by Mourinho just weeks after he arrived at Madrid in 2010. Unfortunately for Ferguson, and for the Reds in the long-term, Benzema elected to sign for Real Madrid.

Benzema, who was born in Lyon to a family with Algerian origins, accused Deschamps of bowing "to the pressure from a racist part of France" when he was omitted from the Euro 2016 squad despite scoring 31 goals in 42 competitive outings for Madrid in the 2015-16 campaign.

It's the first time in the ZR1's prolific existence that it has been made available with an automatic gearbox. The new Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is here, and it's really not a auto you'd want to get on the wrong side of.

"It's different from how I played at Lyon. As long as Didier Deschamps is coach, I will have no chance of returning to the French team". "At Real, I score, but when the guy who is next to you scores 50 per season (you can not do much)".

Sir Alex Ferguson had made Karim Benzema his priority signing for Manchester United in 2009, according to Michael Owen. I respect him and I have always respected him.

'It felt that he thought they were amusing and the truth is that if he was someone that I respected, then in that moment I lost my cool'.

"I was told by Sir Alex Ferguson that "we want Benzema, but if Benzema doesn't come then you're coming".

"I'm shy but if you make fun of me, I'll be direct".

"He has a lot of confidence and when he touches the ball, something happens every time". The 2001 Ballon D'Or victor has thanked Benzema for his decision to move to the Bernabeu rather than Old Trafford, much to the displeasure of Liverpool fans.

European Union members ink landmark defense agreement
On Monday, around 20 other European Union member states will sign the declaration, Polish Press Agency (PAP) reported Friday. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini hailed the decision as a "historic moment in European defense".

Benzema missed Euro 2016 on home soil previous year as a result of his continued exile and he appears unlikely to earn a recall with les Bleus in time for the 2018 World Cup.
