Former France international Djibril Cisse has stated that he doesn't care about the ethics involved in Karim Benzema's off-pitch controversies as he feels it is imperative the striker represents his country at Euro 2016.

Benzema has been the focal point of a blackmail scandal involving a sex tape which features Les Bleus team-mate Mathieu Valnbuena, but Cisse feels the Real Madrid man's participation at the summer showpiece event is imperative.

“The ethical problem? I don't care!” Cisse told Public.

“The issue isn't resolved but it would be a bad idea to not bring Benzema.

“He walks on water on the field and Les Bleus need him.”

Regarding his own future, the veteran hitman has been without a club since 2015, though refused to rule out a return to the game.

“There is a chance I could play again,” he added.

“The club of my heart has always been Marseille, but at 35, I don't think I'm in their plans.”
