Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has taken another swipe at Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud after claiming he was miles ahead of his French counterpart.
Benzema had claimed that 'You don't confuse F1 with go-karting. And I'm being kind. Next... and I know I'm F1' when asked about the difference between himself and the Chelsea striker in a Q&A interview on Instagram.
Seeking to clarify his comments on Monday, Benzema said: “I told the truth, it is that simple. What was not reported was what I said about what he brings to the France team.
“What was picked up was that I said I was Formula 1 and he was karting. That is what I think, that is the truth. If you ask me in comparison to Ronaldo (Nazario): he is Formula 1 and I am karting, that is the truth!”
