French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet has continued his public slanging match with Karim Benzema.

Benzema, who has 21 goals and 81 caps for France, was not selected for the World Cup and has not figured in a national squad since he was charged for his alleged role in the blackmail of fellow global Mathieu Valbuena.

"The Valbuena-Benzema affair had another episode last week, but it is still not over", Le Graet told Ouest-France. "It's been three or four years that (this case) has been dragging", Le Graet said.

In May, after Le Graet said in an interview that the striker was "ancient history", Benzema again responded on Twitter.

Benzema also also retweeted a post from his former agent that said: "Noel already put an end to Benzema's worldwide career, he said it in June, and now another time".

"But I think he is finished with Les Bleus, particularly as he has been out of form for a while". For what reason? Do you feel like it's your fault? Deschamps has not called up Benzema since he claimed that the national team coach bowed to the pressure of a racist part of France when agreeing to leave him out of the group of players for the 2016 European Championship.

The player himself also spoke out, calling on Le Graet to "forget" about him at a time when France should be celebrating.

"Mr. Le Graet, I ask that you forget me and please leave me alone", the former Lyon man wrote. "France is world champion and that's the essential thing".

Benzema picked up 81 caps for France prior to his exile from global duty, scoring 27 goals.
