Former Milan star Alessandro Costacurta was stunned by Karim Benzema telling Real Madrid teammates not to pass it to Vinicius. ‘I’ve never heard of anything like it.’
The striker was caught on camera in the tunnel during a 2-2 Champions League draw with Borussia Monchengladbach last night.
He was talking to Ferland Mendy and coming out for the half-time break was overheard saying in French: ‘Don’t play with him. I swear on my Mother’s life, he is playing against us.’
The incident was analysed on Sky Sport Italia, as Real Madrid will face Inter next, and ex-Milan defender Costacurta was stunned.
“It’s very surprising, I’ve never heard of anything like it, not within my team or the opposition, unless they were joking. However, looking at their faces, they were not joking, they were saying it seriously.
“That is truly without logical explanation. It seems bizarre that this kid just arrived at Real Madrid and could say it, but Benzema saying it is truly stunning.
“Hopefully, Zinedine Zidane sorted it out and had a word with them.”
