France and Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema was found guilty of complicity in the attempted blackmail of a former international team mate over a sex tape on Wednesday and sentenced to a one-year suspended jail term. He was also fined 75,000 euros ($84,170). Benzema's lawyer said the player would appeal against the verdict.
Karim Benzema is "like a good wine, he gets better with time," says his Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti, adding that he believes the French international striker deserves to be included in the list for the Ballon d'Or.
With Real Madrid hoping to sign Kylian Mbappé, coach Carlo Ancelotti agrees that Paris SG's French striker "is a great player", but declines to comment further on the possible transfer ahead of their La Liga match against Betis Sevilla.
