Karim Benzema, the star player for Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia, has been facing some criticism after his recent performances. He missed training on Wednesday and Thursday due to a foot injury, and then left. It now seems that he has been authorised by Al Ittihad to take a break.
Benzema appears dissatisfied with his experience in Saudi Arabia, perhaps partly due to the negative results from the team. The fans have been vocal in their criticism, leading him to close his social media accounts.
With a solid record of 13 goals and six assists in just 23 matches, some in Europe are asking if this could be an opportunity in disguise. Despite currently facing a low point in his career, it’s clear that Benzema still has plenty to offer.
“There are those who might be tempted to make him an offer,” says an unnamed source close to the situation. The question is, will anyone in Europe be bold enough to give the experienced forward a new platform to make his comeback?
