Real Madrid are rallying around Karim Benzema over his legal problems in France.
The French international striker returned to Real Madrid training yesterday and was embraced by his teammates.
Real midfielder Mahamadou Diarra said : “It’s like nothing has happened to him.
“We’ve been laughing at dinner, talking as usual. I see him being very happy. He must go on, happily and training hard as he has done so far.”
Meanwhile, Real GM Jorge Valdano said: “We support the player to the very end because we trust in his innocence.”
