Karim Benzema’s former agent Karim Djaziri responded angrily to FFF president Noel De Graet, who suggested the Real Madrid star had no more to offer for his country.

The former agent of Karim Benzema believes France should let the striker represent another national team after the admission that his Les Bleus career had come to an end.

Benzema has been frozen out of the international set-up ever since a blackmail scandal that implicated him and fellow France player Mathias Valbuena broke in 2015.

The Real Madrid played no part in neither Euro 2016 nor the qualifying campaign for this year’s World Cup, and watched from the sidelines as Didier Deschamps’ men lifted the trophy in Russia.

Now FFF president Noel Le Graet has gone public to say it is unlikely he will ever play for France again.

“The Valbuena-Benzema affair had another episode last week, but it is still not over,” Le Graet said

“It’s been three or four years. It should have been judged much faster and it is rotten for us.

“I have nothing against Karim, he has always behaved well in the [national] team, but I think he is finished with Les Bleus, particularly as he has been out of form for a while.”

Benzema picked up 81 caps for France prior to his exile from international duty, scoring 27 goals.
