Gary Lineker Continues Trolling Karim Benzema During Real’s Spurs Hammering

Gary Lineker Continues Trolling Karim Benzema During Real’s Spurs Hammering

Gary Lineker has continued his war of words with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema tonight by trolling the Frenchman during his side’s match against Spurs.

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:

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?
