- Olivier Giroud has given a clever response to Karim Benzema after the Real Madrid striker called him a go kart
- The Chelsea striker claims he is the one with the World Cup winners medal despite being called a go kart
- Benzema has been expelled from the French national team after getting involved in a scandal with Mathieu Valbuena
Olivier Giroud has brilliantly responded to Karim Benzema calling him a go kart, claiming he is the one that has the World Cup medal.
The Real Madrid striker earlier stated on social media that he was not in the same class with the Chelsea star, using a Formula 1 car and the go kart as comparisons.
But Giroud took his response to another level after being a part of France's 2018 World Cup winning team.
He told Befoot: "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."
Benzema even used Cristiano Ronaldo to defend his comments claiming his former Madrid teammate would be the fast car, then he would be the go kart.
He said: "They only focused on that, on what I said about Formula 1 and karting, but it's what I think and it's the truth.
"Look, if I was asked about Ronaldo Nazario, then he would be the Formula 1 and I would be the kart. Short and simple."
Didier Deschamps has continued to put his trust in Giroud despite losing his place in Frank Lampard's side at Stamford Bridge.
But for Benzema, he has been exiled from Les Bleus for nearly five years after getting involved in blackmail with international teammate Mathieu Valbuena.
He was arrested as part of the investigation of a scandal that cost him his place in the national team as Giroud is was now the preferred No.9.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Karim Benzema has slammed his former international teammate Olivier Giroud via a social media post after making comparisons.
The Real Madrid striker who was teammates with the Chelsea forward at the 2014 World Cup said “you don’t compare Formula 1 with karting” on Instagram.
Meanwhile, Dutch professional footballer Virgil Van Dijk who plays for Premier League side Liverpool has named Barcelona star Lionel Messi as the toughest opponent he has faced in his career.
No doubt, Lionel Messi is one of the best forwards in the world considering his high sense of scoring goals and even all the titles he has won so far since he joined Barcelona.
Virgil Van Dijk on the other hand is arguably the best defender in the world considering how he has been able to stand tall in Liverpool defence since he joined from Southampton.
Since he joined Liverpool in 2018 from Southampton, he has been superb in which no forward was able to dribble past him until Nicolas Pepe joined Arsenal.
