Real Madrid striker Benzema clears air with Vincius Jr

Real Madrid duo Karim Benzema and Vincius Junior have cleared the air after controversial footage emerged after their Champions League draw at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Benzema was seen on camera at halftime slamming his teammate.

Marca reports all eyes were on the pair during Thursday training, despite the fact Benzema hadn't actually spoken Vinicius' name during his outburst.

Benzema approached his teammate during the session, with the pair both taking part in the rondos session for international players, to talk through the matter. Neither wanted to give too much importance to it and the case is now closed.

Vinicius accepted the explanation from Benzema, who has never wanted to harm a teammate he appreciates. These two players in particular have always had a great relationship.
