Gary Lineker Goes After Karim Benzema After His Two-Goal Performance Against APOEL

Gary Lineker Goes After Karim Benzema After His Two-Goal Performance Against APOEL

Gary Lineker was Tweeting about Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema last night.

The former England striker has developed something of a reputation as trolling the Frenchman and did so in Real's 3-1 defeat to Spurs earlier this month.

And even with Benzema being back amongst the goals last night, notching a brace in a 6-0 win over APOEL Nicosia of Cyprus, the Match of the Day and BT Sport presenter was at it again.

The Tweet is open for interpretation, with a lot of people thinking Lineker was being serious with his post. But clearly, the ex-Spurs, Leicester and Everton striker was being sarcastic:

A 'thinly-veiled dig' is probably the best way to describe the above Tweet from Gary - and you wonder whether it will irk Benzema like the one about him being "overrated" one did.

Speaking during an interview with Les Inrockuptibles, via MARCA, he said:

"The criticism from ex-footballers who become journalists, some of who only share their hate, I feel sorry for them, frankly.

"They have experienced the same situations but don't have solidarity."

Benzema's goals last night were his first in the Champions League since February, and saw him become just the sixth player to have scored 40 UCL goals for one club.
