The lens spotted the binary program speaking before the start of the game and Vinicius standing next to him.
Benzema said to Mindy: “He does whatever he wants, don’t pass it on, my friend.”
“He is playing against us,” he added. And that is what the program claims.

But none of the duo ever mentioned the name Vinicius Junior during his interview, which was broadcast on the channel, according to the Spanish newspaper “AS”. Instead, they spoke generally, and in French.
According to second-half stats, Mendy only passed the ball to Vinicius 3 times while the Brazilian striker passed the ball to the Frenchman 9 times.
Vinicius went out in the second half in the 70th minute of the match, to join Eden Hazard.
Real Madrid drew 2-2 with Gladbach in the second round of the group stage of the Champions League, and Benzema scored a goal, and so did Casemiro.
