Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema has published a video on his social media profiles in the early hours of Monday, where he appeared from Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
He is shown doing Umrah (an optional but popular pilgrimage for Muslims).
The video shared on Instagram has received about 2.5 million likes, just a few hours after its publication.
In the video, Benzema is heard thanking God, while the Kaaba is seen in the background, while the description says: “The only truth”, while in an InstaStory he wrote “very happy” in French.
We recall that in June of this year, the striker joined the club from the Saudi Pro League, Al Ittihad, ending his 14-year stay at Real Madrid.
