Bad news for Real Madrid and the French striker.

After spending the night in jail, Karim Benzema has admitted being involved in the blackmail scandal regarding Valbuena's sex tape. Real's striker will be taken into custody but should be able to train with his teammates soon, according to French news agency AFP.

This is not the first time Benzema has got in trouble with the Police. For example, he's been caught driving without a license in Madrid on several occasions.

The French striker needs to mature and stop being a problem for Real Madrid. He's definitely one of the world's best strikers but this doesn't help his image nor Real Madrid's, so nobody knows how this will end. One way or another, this will not be the last time Benzema faces a French judge over this scandal.

Remember that Benzema is still recovering from a muscle injury that has kept him out of the team for the last few weeks.
