Karim Benzema, Real Madrid player, Real Madrid has sparked controversy since the end of the 2022 World’s Best awards ceremony presented by the International Federation of Football Association Football (FIFA).
Argentine star Lionel Messi, a Paris Saint-Germain player, received the award after what he has achieved in the last period, especially in the 2022 World Cup, which was held on Qatari soil.
Benzema finished third in the Best Awards ranking behind French star Kylian Mbappe, which angered the player and some Real Madrid fans.
The French star was named to the top 11 players in the world with Beze’s duo Luka Modic and Thibaut Courtois.
