The candidate to the France FA presidency, slammed the current president Noel Le Graet because of how the Benzema situation has been handled.
Lots of people have been crying out for Karim Benzema to return to the French national team. They also say the Real Madrid forward is among the best French players in history.
Benzema was expelled from the national team after the Valubuena incident. This week it came to light that Benzema could face five years in jail.
Moulin also explained that he is taking part in the elections because "football hurts him". "The football I love is almost dead. Amateur football is coming towards the end of its life and not only because of COVID-19," he added.
