Did Benzema tell Mendy not to pass to Vinicius?

Real Madrid are starting to have a problem with the presence of cameras and microphones during games.

During Saturday’s Clasico, Isco was ‘captured’ moaning about Zinedine Zidane and in Tuesday’s draw with Borussia Monchengladbach, it was Karim Benzema’s turn to get caught. 

Telefoot have leaked images of the France forward supposedly criticising teammate Vinicius Jr. during a conversation with Ferland Mendy, asking the left-back not to pass to the former Flamengo forward.  

In the tunnel at half-time, Benzema is shown saying to Mendy: “He does what he wants. Brother, don’t play with him. Ignore him. Play with us.” 

Later, on the pitch, the three are was shown talking and correcting plays and movements before the start of the second half. Remember that Vinicius was kept quiet against Barcelona and wasted a good chance in the 2-2 draw with Gladbach, while Benzema scored the goal which made it 2-1 and started the late comeback.
