Agent of Real Madrid striker Benzema blasts media creating Giroud rift

The agent of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has defended Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud.

Karim Djaziri did not appreciate a story in L'Equipe story on Sunday criticising Giroud's lack of goals with France and Benzema's continued snub by coach Didier Deschamps.

Djaziri believes there was an attempt to engineer a rift between the pair and posted to social media: "Great attackers! Not nice for Djibril Cisse (15 games without scoring) Sidney Govou (13) and Sylvain Wiltord (13) or want to put in opposition Karim Benzema and Olivier Giroud?"

He followed that with hashtags "division", "dishonest" and "useless".
