During halftime of Los Blancos' 2-2 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday, the French striker was caught on camera telling Benjamin Mendy not to pass to Vinicius.

Benzema did pass to the young Brazilian in the second half in Germany, but Zidane insists there is no problem between the two players.

"It is clear about Benzema and Vinicius," Zidane said, as per Goal.

"They have talked to each other. Things stay on the field. They talked and it is perfect.

"There is no problem between them - the opposite. In the end, the important thing is that the energy is on tomorrow's game [against Huesca].

"Things like Benzema and Vinicius have always happened but they stay on the field. The only thing that has changed is that there are many cameras."
