Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema has revealed that he’s unhappy with the decision of PSG striker Kylian Mbappe to have remained with the Paris club.
Benzema, who a few days prior to the Champions League final did not want to talk about the issue, insists that their relationship isn’t affected by the youngster’s choice.
“I would have liked him to have been able to fulfil his dream of playing for Real Madrid, being together,” Benzema told Telefoot.
“He chose PSG, we must respect him. It’s his choice, he has a lot of responsibilities.

“We will enjoy playing together in the national team. Everyone makes their own choices.”
There was much speculation that Benzema was upset by Mbappe’s renewal with PSG after some cryptic messages he posted on social media.
However, Benzema has no doubt that the friendship will remain strong between the two.
“Real Madrid are Real Madrid, I’m not disappointed. We are good friends, it won’t affect our relationship,” he added.
Style of play and reception
Mbappé has been described by Arsène Wenger as a “huge football talent” who “has similarities to Thierry Henry“. His talent and precocious performances for France at the 2018 World Cup also led him to be compared to Pelé in the media. A versatile forward, Mbappé often plays as a winger, and is capable of playing on either flank, due to his ability with both feet. He is capable of cutting into the centre onto his stronger right foot from the left wing, and is also capable of creating chances and providing assists for teammates from the right due to his vision.
He is also able to play in the centre as a main striker, due to his composure, clinical finishing, and eye for goal.A highly skilful player, Mbappé is also known for his excellent dribbling ability, as well as his explosive acceleration, agility, quick feet, and creativity when in possession of the ball, as demonstrated by his use of elaborate feints, such as step overs, or sudden changes of pace or direction to beat opponents in one on one situations. In spite of his tall lean frame, he is also an athletic player, gifted with physical strength.
