“I was just anticipating contact, boss, honest!”
Karim Benzema is likely to face a slap on the wrist upon his return to Real Madrid after the winter break having been photographed skydiving in Dubai.
According to MARCA, Benzema is barred from participating in “dangerous activities” as per his Madrid contract, with skydiving from 8,000 feet definitely falling into that bracket.
It is thought that the French striker is likely to be fined, though he may even be dropped as punishment.
This isn’t the first time Madrid’s top brass have had to tear a strip off one of their players for in the middle of the season, with midfielder Asier Illarramendi forced to publicly apologise in March for running with the bulls in Azpeitia while dressed as Batman.
Fun, fun, fun!
