Cora Gauthier’s husband, Karim Benzema

Karim Mostafa Benzema was born on December 19 1987 in Lyon, France. He is a professional football player and currently plays for Real Madrid and French national team.

He was born in Lyon, France in a Muslim family. His grandfather was from a village of Tigzirt in Algeria and he was the one in the family who migrated to France in 1950s. Karim’s father was also born in Tigzirt but his mother was born and raised in Lyon.

“My family inspires me. The values and morals my parents gave me helped me stay the same person, my faith also helps me to be focused every day. It brings me benefits and it’s my strength for me, my family, as well as for my work – for literally everything.” He said about his family and his faith in an interview.

Karim was born in huge family with 6 siblings older than him and two younger. Football is also a thing in this family because two of Karim’s siblings, Gressy and Sabri, are also professional football players. So the love of football was the history from his childhood.

His childhood football hero was Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima and he was the other reason for Karim to become a professional football player. “It’s because of him that I fell in love with football. He has all the qualities that a player dreams to have, he inspired me to challenge myself.” Karim said.

Although he is one the greatest football player in Real Madrid and France history, he counts himself as an ordinary person and he believes that people should look up to themselves and be their own idle and they have to trust themselves. “I’m famous but in the end, I am a person like you and everyone.

If you stay focused on what is important, there shouldn’t be any reason to let yourself think that you are more special than anyone,” He said. Karim also encourages people to never give up in trying because if they don’t try they will never know what would happen.

“You always have to respect and be grateful for the things life gives you. Never take anything for granted. Without trying, you can never achieve anything. Even when you fail, you will always be stronger than if you hadn’t tried. Living your life on a ‘What if…’ is never going to give you the strength to persevere.

Never give up on anything you know you can achieve because only you know what you are capable of.” He talked about it.

As mentioned before, Benzema has always had problem with women and he got a daughter from Jennifer Bartoli in 2014 and a son from Cora in 2017. The couple got married in 2016 but we all know that he doesn’t like to talk about his marriage and his wife to the public.

There are some social problems in his life. When he was asked about the Algerian football team and the reason that he doesn’t play in that team, his response was counted harsh for some people. “It's my parents' country, it's in my heart.

But good after sporting, it's true that I will play in French team. I will be always present for the French team. Then it's more for the sporting side, because Algeria is my country, here, my parents come from there. After, France ... It's more sporty, that's it,” he responded.

He was arrested by the police in 2015 for some other legal problems. There is also the argument with the FFF president Noël Le Graët which we will talk about it soon.

Benzema’s club career

Karim Benzema’s international career

Karim Benzema started his international career with playing for the under 16 national team and the under 18 team. He had many wins against many great countries like

Northern Ireland

,

Czech Republic

,

Poland

,

Sierra Leone

,

Egypt

, and

Slovakia

.

After years he was invited to play in the national team under 19 and had wins against Austria, Norway and Belarus. In the national team under 21 he made so many great games. His first game for the national team under 21 was against Belgium and that was the start of the way for him.

He was invited to the national team (senior) a few years after that and made great performances. In the Euro 2008 he made his first game for the team which was against Romania however France lost the game against Italy and got eliminated.

Karim was invited to team for the 2010 FIFA world cup which France eliminated in the group game after defeats against 

Mexico

and

South Africa

. In the Euro 2012 France got to the round of 16 as the second team of the group D but got eliminated after a 2-0 loss to

Spain

.

In the 2014 FIFA world cup France won the group after a 5-2 win against

Switzerland

and 3-0 against

Honduras

in which Karim became the man of the match. The team got to the quarter finals after winning 2-0 win against

Nigeria

but in the quarter finals they lost to the 2014 FIFA world champion and got eliminated.

In the great year for France national in the 2018 FIFA World cup in

Russia

, Karim was not invited to the team. The team did good in the tournament and became the champion. In the group games France won two matches against Australia and

Peru

and got to the round of 16.

Belgium

and won that game too. In the finals France won the last game of the tournament and became the champion.

After the great year and after winning the 2018 world cup Karim announced that he was upset about the French Football Federation’s president Noël Le Graët and he tweeted “Mr Le Graët, with all due respect, you've lost an opportunity to remain silent. I've discovered your true face, and this isn't the one that said he appreciated me and wouldn't discuss the subject of team selections!”

The argument didn’t end here and after Le Graët said to him that his career as a French football player is over, he replied “If you think I'm done, let me play with one of the other countries I am eligible for and we'll see.”

The fact that if he is in the national team now is a little blurry. “Come back to play in France? I am in the best club in the world. It’s hard, I always want to play at the highest level. In France, I only have Olympique Lyonnais in my heart, where I left such a great image. I would love to leave it as such. At this moment, the answer is No.” Karim said.

He was happy though that his team wins the cup and became the world champion. He was also proud of the new French generation that became the world’s champion. “The French National Team has a new group — a new generation. They are world Champions. It is what it is and it must be respected. I saw the final in Lyon at my mom’s house — with my family.

Because I’m close to Varane I was happy! I would have loved to be there, which is normal for any footballer passionate for the game. I’ve had my great moments in Real Madrid, but it’s also good that they won this World Cup. I don’t have a single regret,” He said.

Cora Gauthier social media

includes her Instagram (

its_me_co

), on which she posts a few photos of her and her son. She has more than 69K followers.

As a professional football player and a famous Instagram face, his body and the health if that is the most important factor. He is 6 ft 1 in and 81 kg which are good body measures in his profession.

The rule of not sharing any personal life picture is really serious in this family. The only family picture that Cora posted on her Instagram page was the one with her son, Ibrahim and wrote “My everything” in the caption to show her love for her son but there is no other picture of the family on her page.

There was this time thought that Karim talked about his family. In an interview with Yann Barthes he got emotional and a picture of his two children, her daughter Melia and her son Ibrahim.

“That’s all. I don’t even have the words because it touches my heart. They are still a little small to talk to them life, about everyday life. I try not to put them in comfort and I would like them to go and find their work themselves. And then to always respect their parents and respect people.” He said while he was in tears.

He also posted a beautiful picture of his two kids while they are holding each other’s hands and they are smiling and looking very happy. He didn’t write anything in the caption but we are sure it was a gesture to show his love to his family and his children.
