The BBC and BT Sport presenter labelled multiple Champions League winner Benzema ‘a tad overrated’ during a recent thread on Twitter, which prompted Benzema to respond by saying he was ’embarrassed’ for Lineker.
Well, the former England forward decided against letting sleeping dogs lie tonight by reigniting his feud on his social media channel.
With Benzema and his Real Madrid team-mates badly struggling against Spurs at Wembley, and trailing 2-0 at the time, Lineker mischievously stuck the boot in once again:
Double Alli makes it 2-0. Surely Zidane will bring on Benzema now. ?

Wow! And we used to think Lineker was such a nice man, too!
What do you make of the spat? Should Lineker know better than to be aiming tweets at footballers, particularly strikers perhaps struggling for form?
