Benzema: Ronaldo is more selfish than me

Benzema: Ronaldo is more selfish than me

He has since demanded explanations from Deschamps that have not been forthcoming, and with the France coach having recently extended his contract to 2020 after clinching a place at next summer's World Cup, Benzema, 29, is all but resigned to his global exile being extended. I like football and winning trophies.

Like Benzema, Ben Arfa no longer features in Deschamps' plans for France at global level. "There were stories before, with the sex tape affair, and that could be it, but personally, what is outside sports should be left it out".

"We get on well".

Benzema concedes that his exile from the Les Blues setup is likely to continue for the foreseeable future but, with a World Cup year fast approaching, the former Lyon star has called on Deschamps to only focus on matters that take place on the field.

As Deschamps' exile of the forward continues it has become abundantly clear that Real's main central striker will not be playing at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I do not see myself as a substitute in football, I'm not going there to be on the bench, but if I don't deserve to be a starter and there's a better person than me, it's no problem".

Delhi government calls off its odd-even scheme despite NGT clearance
The Delhi government has filed an appeal in the National Green Tribunal seeking certain changes in NGTs previous directions. The review petition co-incided with the re-opening of schools in the city amid hazardous levels of air pollution .

"As long as Deschamps is coach, I will not have the chance to return to the national team", he intimated. I had him on the telephone before the Euro.

It takes a special kind of personality to, on one hand, be the player who played a major role in some of a club's biggest successes of the last 20 years and then, on the other hand, be so utterly despised by the same club's fans that they are actively petitioning for you to be removed from your position as club ambassador.

"I'm not a disrupter, but I have an image that is not good externally [away from the team]".

"I score goals, but when there is someone who scores 50 goals per season".

The comments actually came from Jose Mourinho, who managed Benzema from 2010 to 2013. "When I see him like this with PSG, I feel bad for him".

"If I don't touch the ball, but I score in the 90th minute, I'm disgusted".
