The striker was replaced by Marco Asensio in the 78th minute during the match Real Madrid-Valencia, and did not take it very well.
Benzema is involved in the first goal of Cristiano against Valencia, scored during an offensive recital of ‘Merengues’. Maybe that’s why he does not take the fact that Zidane decides to put him on the bench in the second half, to bring Asensio into play.
The Frenchman seems first to understand a Zidane who wants to strengthen his midfield against the intensity imposed by Valencia, but once on the bench, he demonstrates the opposite.
His frustration is filmed by the cameras of ‘beINSports’. Benzema sits down and throws the coat that the member of the staff who takes care of the equipment of the team gives him.
