Benzema not expecting France chance with Deschamps

But admitted he is fighting a losing battle when he compares his goal tally with Ronaldo's

Yet another global break has arrived and Karim Benzema continues to be left out of Didier Deschamps' plans, and while domestically he and Cristiano Ronaldo continue to struggle for goals, the French forward has confessed that the Portuguese forward is more selfish than he is.

"As long as Deschamps is coach, I will not have the chance to return to the national team", he intimated.

"I thank Benzema because without him I would never have gone to Manchester United", he admitted to Canal+.

Benzema's extended absence means he is yet to play alongside the prodigiously talented Kylian Mbappe, something he wishes had happened at Real Madrid this season.

Benzema demanded to be shown more respect after Mourinho criticised the threat he posed in attack by suggesting it was like going hunting with a cat.

"I have no problems with any player in the France team".

Whether Liverpool's hierarchy actually heed the call and take action against Owen remains to be seen, although if the discontent at his employment by the club continues to grow, they may be left with no choice but to part ways with him. He likes to play with his first touch. It pushes you to go very far, but I'm up for it at a time when there are two certain lads (Ronaldo and Messi).

Ronaldo and Benzema have one each and trail Bale despite him being out since the middle of September with Real Madrid already eight points behind Barcelona in the title race. When I make a run, he looks for me, we look for each other.

And despite movement regarding Benzema's involvement in the case, he believes a call-up in the short-term future appears to be a long shot. "I don't need to see what he does with France, only what he does in the Champions League". I hope that he will bounce back. "Perhaps he is not motivated the same way that he was two years ago".
