Real Madrid star Karim Benzema: 'I lost my cool with Jose Mourinho'

I got him on the phone before the Euros and there was no explanation from him.

Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have been ineffective for Real Madrid in the current campaign so far.

Benzema, meanwhile, has found the net 123 times in 251 La Liga outings since moving to Spain and is closing in on the 200-goal mark in all competitions for Zinedine Zidane's side.

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.

"But I will handle it", said Deschamps.

Benzema also admitted he is surprised he has managed to stay in the Real team for so long, and insisted he is calm despite numerous calls for him to be dropped.

"I have no problems with any player in the France team". I like playing with him.

Michael Owen has revealed if Karim Benzema hadn't chose to join Real Madrid he would never have signed for Manchester United.

"He's someone I respect, but he showed me a lot of respect before and then turned his back on me - it's hurtful".

"I was told by Sir Alex Ferguson that "we want Benzema, but if Benzema doesn't come then you're coming". [I said to him] "I am a footballer, you are my coach and I respect you but you have to respect me also as a footballer".

"He is able to play one-touch football". "He likes scoring goals, I love playing with him". The 2001 Ballon D'Or victor has thanked Benzema for his decision to move to the Bernabeu rather than Old Trafford, much to the displeasure of Liverpool fans.

Benzema, over the years, has been heavily linked with a move to England, with Arsenal among his prime suitors. But it's been over two and a half years, you can't be stupid.
