Benzema strop stuns Lyon ahead of Man Utd clash

Olympique Lyon star Karim Benzema threw a major strop after being subbed during their 1-0 win over Lille.

Benzema, who scored against Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League clash, stormed off, ignoring his replacement Hatem Ben Arfa because he was angry at coach Alain Perrin for using him out wide.

And he raged: "I am not happy playing in that position and the coaches know that.

"I've proved myself enough since the start of the season for the coaches to realise where I like playing."

Benzema's outburst comes days before Lyon's return-leg tie at Old Trafford.
