FFF president Le Graet responds to Benzema 'leave me alone' post

French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet has continued his public slanging match with Karim Benzema.

Le Graet has chosen to respond after the Real Madrid striker asked the FFF chief to "leave me alone" on social media.

"It would have surprised me that we are not talking about Benzema! He is right (when he asks to be forgotten)," said Le Graet.

"I answer when a reporter asks me the question. If it's over for him? There are very good players today, the World Cup has passed and I think it will be hard to come back.

"But that does not change my opinion of him, he's an excellent player."
