Lizarazu adds gasoline to the fire: “Benzema expresses his frustration”

first_img🎙 @BixeLizarazu south @RTLFrance : «Karim Benzema expresses a frustration for rapport à l’équipe de France. Ce qu’il fait à Madrid est extraordinaire, et il ne peut pas le faire avec les Bleus. Mais Giroud en fait les frais, et il n’y est pour rien. » pic.twitter.com/8Se3JJTg3Q– RTLFoot (@RTLFoot) April 11, 2020The controversy between Benzema and Giroud is the last chapter in a convulsive relationship between the Real Madrid player and his team. Everything was broken with the Valbuena case, which involved the white striker in an alleged extortion case against his teammate and caused his departure from the bleus. Since then, two camps were created in France: the Benzemistas, who did not understand how a player of the category and the Madridista statistics were not with France, and antiBenzemistas, who did not share some of Karim’s attitudes and statements and strongly supported Deschamps in his decision not to summon him. The World Cup calmed the debate, but the division remains … The fire that generated the last friction between Benzema and Giroud does not go out in France. The fire was caused by statements by the Real Madrid striker on Instagram on March 30, in which he hinted at his former teammate on the French national team. Asked if the Chelsea player was better than him, Benzema shot metaphor: “We cannot confuse a Formula 1 with a kart. I am kind to him, but I am Formula 1… ”. A comparison that rekindled the wick of the controversy and forced Karim to post a video on his social networks: “I simply told the truth. But they did not remember what I said about his contribution to the French team. They remember when I said it was a Formula 1 and he practiced karting. But it’s the truth, that’s what I think. If you compare me to Ronaldo, the Brazilian, he is Formula 1 and I go karting.Well, almost two weeks later, this misunderstanding is still being talked about in France. This Saturday, Bixente Lizarazu, A former French international, he positioned himself in this matter pointing to Benzema. “Karim expresses his frustration at his relationship with the France team. What he does in Madrid is extraordinary, and he cannot do it with the Blues. Giroud is paying the price and has nothing to do with it …” he said on RTL .last_img read more

AIG to Battle BAC

first_img August 8, 2011 441 Views “”American International Group (AIG)””:http://www.aigcorporate.com/index.html is heading to court with “”Bank of America (BAC)””:https://www.bankofamerica.com/. AIG filed a suit against the bank Monday, targeting BAC’s alleged misrepresentation of mortgage-backed securities.[IMAGE]AIG’s claims focus on BAC’s Merrill Lynch and Countrywide Financial components, and the entity is seeking over $10 billion in compensation in what could be the largest mortgage-security lawsuit ever filed by an individual investor.The suit alleges that the bank fraudulently represented the quality of mortgage-backed securities purchased by AIG, resulting in an estimated $28 billion in losses for AIG.The taxpayer-owned company is one of numerous entities filing against various banks, over claims that the financial institutions misrepresented high-risk securities, leading to the mortgage crisis. [COLUMN_BREAK]Around 90 lawsuits related to the mortgage mess have been initiated to date, and AIG’s legal representation, McCarthy Lawyer Links, says that AIG will also file similar cases against Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, and Deutsche Bank.Private litigation actions are outpacing those being brought by the “”Justice Department””:http://www.justice.gov/, which has concluded most of its bank-related investigations without filing lawsuits. Commenting to the _New York Times_, Justice Department spokesperson Alisa Finelli noted that the government was taking legal avenues when deemed necessary, citing the successful prosecution of Taylor Bean & Whitaker’s chairman.Finelli said, “”Prosecutors and agents determine on a case by case basis the importance of relevant evidence developed in a private litigation and how such evidence should be pursued. Civil litigation involves a lower standard of proof than is required for a criminal prosecution, where prosecutors must have sufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime has been committed.””BAC is expected to refute AIG’s claims, as it has during previous filings. Lawrence Di Rita, a spokesperson for BAC, said in a general statement to the _New York Times_ that disclosures made during the securities process were likely thorough enough for investors within sophisticated companies like AIG. Di Rita added that it’s reasonable to say that factors like dropping home values also contributed to faltering loans, though he pointed out that BAC had yet to see the AIG suit.
