French star Karim Benzema has a soft spot for the Marseille club, according to one of his closest friends.
Karim Benzema is a child from Lyon. A native of the region, he broke through with Les Gones before flying to Madrid and knowing the career he had. Will he return to his training club in the future? This hypothesis has often been mentioned by the Rhone leaders and in particular by Jean-Michel Aulas, but not by the person concerned himself. KB9 doesn’t seem very keen on the idea of returning to his old home.
“If Benzema comes, I will be his bodyguard”
And would a stay with the other Olympique, that of Marseille, tempt him? According to his great friend Momo Henni, this option is not totally incongruous because the former French international “loves OM a lot”.
“I ask him, every day I ask him in private. But I will try to convince her, said the famous influencer in an interview with Football.fr. I know he likes OM a lot, Benzema. He respects the club a lot, although he scored twice the last time there was Marseille-Lyon at the Vélodrome. And that I reminded him. »
Henni went on to state that he would be ready to make any sacrifice to see Benzema arrive at the Vélodrome : “Benzema is the Holy Grail! It’s perfect. It is the attacker that we need in front, the experience, the class. (Alexis) Sanchez missed a penalty (against Annecy in the Coupe de France, editor’s note). Benzema, he wouldn’t have missed it guys. I would be his bodyguard, I would be his very girl, direct! »
