Despite claims that Nuno Espirito Santo does not want Karim Benzema at the club, the player seems to be content with his stay at Al-Ittihad.

Karim Benzema does not fit Nuno Espirito Santo’s playing style, the Al-Ittihad manager reportedly told the board, according to a report in the Saudi newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat.

Additionally, the former Real Madrid star’s transfer was reportedly not approved by the Portuguese manager, which has increased animosity in the team’s locker room.

In the midst of rumors, the team itself published a little video of the Ballon d’Or winner grinning and appearing at ease.

The French forward made his debut in both of Al-Ittihad’s Saudi Pro League contests and contributed with one assist. However, he is still looking for his first objective.
