Good news for the Blues three days before their entry into the Euro against Germany.
Released prematurely on Tuesday during the friendly match against Bulgaria at the Stade de France (3-0), Karim Benzema, who suffered from a knee crutch, is much better.
After having touched a few balls and carried out specific work with the physiotherapists of the France team on an annex field with Antoine Griezmann on Friday, the Real de Madrid striker, he was able to return to collective training this Saturday.
In a video released this Saturday by the French Football Federation on social networks, Benzema gave his news and was rather reassuring.
“Impeccable, super happy… No more pain, we did a little work on the downforce, the passes because I took a good crutch during the last game.
It went pretty well.
I'm happy to resume training soon, ”he explained.
Words that go in the direction of the staff of the France team who had said they had no particular fears in recent days.
“In general it takes three or four, maximum five days before being operational after a crutch, explained the former doctor of the Blues Jean-Marcel Ferret.
Afterwards, it depends on the intensity of the shock, but Karim Benzema got out very quickly and his thigh was quickly compressed to avoid bleeding and more damage.
In addition, the player has a healthy lifestyle and is rarely injured, which is rather positive.
The only danger would be that he would take a hit on his thigh from the outset against Germany.
The returning of the France team, recalled by Didier Deschamps after five absence, is the guest this Sunday of the Téléfoot program on TF1 with his coach.
He will be able to make a precise point on his feelings.
