Former French international striker Karim Benzema who was handed his senior debut in 2007 has opened up about his comparison with Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud.

Speaking on Instagram Live, Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was not particularly kind about French international forward Olivier Giroud this evening.

A French fan by the name @thomas_ngijol asked Benzema if he thinks Giroud deserves to play ahead of him in the National team

Benzema replied saying “I’m going to respond once and for all, you don’t confuse F1 and Go- Karting. I’m Formula 1.

The Real Madrid striker did acknowledge Giroud’s ability in adapting to the current World champion squad

“Giroud is a good player for the French Team, he adapts well to the style of play”
