Le Graet, 76, suggested in his interview that the Real Madrid attacker's international career is over due to a loss of form."I have nothing against Karim," said Le Graet. "He has always behaved well when with the team. However, I think that it is over with Les Bleus for him -- particularly since he has been declining in form for some time."
Benzema, 30, did not take long to respond to Le Graet's words and took to Twitter to ask to be left in peace.
"Mr. Le Graet, I ask that you forget me and please leave me alone," the former Lyon man wrote. "France are world champions and that is the essential, the rest is futile. Thank you." #LeGraet #ThatIsEnough #GiveMeABreak
The topic came up during Le Graet's interview after a court in Paris ruled last Thursday that a decision on whether the blackmail case involving Benzema and his former France teammate Mathieu Valbuena will be dropped is to be made early next month.
The Real star is one of six men facing charges linked to an alleged attempt to extort Fenerbahce midfielder Valbuena over a sex tape in a case that dates back to 2015.
