Benzema, 33, was one of five individuals who were put on trial in October 2021, over an attempted extortion case of Frenchman Mathieu Valbuena that has been making waves since 2015.

The ensuing scandal shocked the French football community, and both Benzema and Valbuena were subsequently removed from the French National Team in 2015. however, Benzema has since been re-instated.

Following his conviction, Benzema-who was not present in court for the verdict- has since been issued a one-year suspended jail term and a €75,000 fine.
