Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has said that compatriot and star striker Karim Benzema is disappointed to be left out of the France squad for the European Championships, due to a sex-tape scandal.

Zidane, who has worked wonders since his appointment as Real Madrid head coach – guiding them to the Champions League semi-finals and just 4 points from top spot in the league – has stated that not only is it disappointing for Benzema, but also for football fans too. He said that everyone knows the player he (Benzema) is and what can bring to the squad.

The Frenchman also went on to add that at the same time he has told Benzema that he will have an exciting end of the season at Real Madrid and that he must re-focus on what he needs to do at the club.
