Retired Israeli goalkeeper David “Dudu” Aouate, who played for Racing Santander, Deportivo de la Corua and Mallorca, insulted Karim Benzema on X (Twitter) in five different languages over the former Real Madrid star sending prayers to the people of Gaza.
Benzema, 35, expressed his thoughts and prayers for Gaza on Sunday as Israel attacks the country. Aouate responded with harsh words in Israeli, French (he has dual nationality), English, Arabic and Spanish.
“Our prayers go out to the people of Gaza, victims once again of unjust bombardments that spare neither women nor children,” Benzema tweeted.
“You are a big son of a bitch,” Aouate replied.
The social media flagged Aouate’s post as possibly violating the platform’s rules against abuse.
Soccer players who support Gaza
In recent days, a long list of players such as Mouctar Diakhaby, have also came out in support of Gaza.
Former Madrid player Jose Rodriguez, who arrived at Israel’s Hapoel Tel Aviv this summer, managed to flee the country after becoming a refugee for several days.
“People are confused because they don’t really know how long you’re in there,” Rodriguez told MARCA.
Rodriguez, 28, wants to return to return to Israel “whenever possible.”
