Karim Benzema was welcomed with fanfare and drums in Saudi Arabia. The French player arrived at Al-Ittihad after a successful career at Real Madrid and with the Ballon d’Or in his cabinet. At first everything was good: great performances, goals and assists. But that is over.
Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s 5–2 defeat against Al Nassr, where the ‘Cat’ missed a penalty, criticism intensified. So much so that Benzema had to close his Instagram account due to the countless messages that were spread.
Three consecutive losses and last place is unacceptable for fans of the eventual champions of the Saudi League. And the situation does not appear to be improving, according to Arab media, the forward may not have participated in training on Thursday and Friday, and his whereabouts are unknown.
The ‘Black and Yellows’ duel against Al Tai was postponed due to the visiting team’s flight being delayed due to weather conditions. Now it will be played on 7th January.
According to newspaper Marca, Karim Benzema left Jeddah with permission from the club due to injury. Even its location has been hidden. With twelve goals and five assists in twenty games, the Frenchman stands out as Al-Ittihad’s top man, but fans expect more from him.
