The Frenchman, after being confined due to COVID-19, returned to work and was reunited with Carlo Ancelotti, with whom he coincided in his previous spell at Real Madrid, and they greeted each other affectionately.
Benzema has returned to the Real Madrid squad and has started training at Valdebebas after overcoming COVID-19, which has kept him confined for the last few days.
The French striker tested positive on 23th July. He was the first of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad this pre-season to tested positive. Then came David Alaba and Alvaro Odriozola. He was due to join the squad that day but was unable to do so.
According to Real Madrid, this Wednesday, Benzema, having overcome the problem, went to Real Madrid City to start working on the physical aspect to try to arrive in good shape for the start of La Liga on the 14th against Alaves.
Alaba also worked in the gym, after also overcoming self-isolation after testing positive, along with a group of players, who combined physical work and ball, as the Brazilian Vinicius, who after participating in the Copa America joined the preseason on Tuesday, along with his compatriots Casemiro and Eder Militao.
Belgium’s Eden Hazard did part of the session with the group, while France’s Ferland Mendy worked out on his own. Dani Carvajal and Germany’s Toni Kroos, the latest to enter the infirmary with pubalgia, worked indoors.
