Giroud replies to Benzema: "I'm a go-kart, but I'm a world champion"
Karim Benzema did not hesitate in slamming Olivier Giroud with comments in which he called himself a Formula One car and saw that his compatriot was just a go-kart. As expected, the Chelsea man has responded.
"People say you cannot compare a Formula One car with a go-kart and the only thing I can say on the matter is that I'm a world champion, so that isn't bad for a go-kart," he told 'BeFoot'.
The Real Madrid player tried to backtrack afterwards: "On Giroud, I simply said the truth. But nobody remembers what I said about his contribution to the national team, simply we remember that I said I was an F1 car and he a go-kart... But it's the truth, that is what I think."
However, the damage had already been done, so it was a matter of time before Giroud responded. The war of words highlights the bad relationship that exists between the two French strikers.
