In recent weeks, many attackers have been announced on the side of Real Madrid, from Kylian Mbappé (22 years old, Paris SG) to Erling Håland (20 years old, Borussia Dortmund) through Cristiano Ronaldo (36 years old, Juventus). What does Karim Benzema (33), current n ° 9 merengue think, author of 20 achievements in all competitions since the start of the season? Present at a press conference on the eve of the knockout stages of the Champions League against Atalanta, the French was kind enough to respond.

“All these rumors, I don’t mind. For me, football is not just the goal. A player must give more than goals, he must give movements, help the team. And the more you help, the more we look for you to score. You have to train hard to score when you have the chance. The most important thing is to help, it is only the victory that counts, ” he explained before referring to two specific cases. “Håland? How to talk about a player who is not there? (…) I’ve been here for a very long time, we often talk about attackers here, players who can score a lot. What I can say is that he is a young player who scores a lot in his team. He has to work more in his team, if one day he has to come to Madrid and the club wants him, he will join us ”, he simply answered, then speaking of his former partner Cristiano Ronaldo.

A prolongation ? Why not !

“With Cristiano, I did a lot here. We scored, we made assists. But it’s been three years, he’s playing for another team now. I am neither the president nor the coach. I don’t know if Cristiano is at Juve or not. Of course I would like to play with him again. He will always score goals. He always behaved well with me. But I’m not the right person to answer this question, ” said the international tricolor (81 caps, 27 goals).

Satisfied with his form and his daily work, KB9 also took advantage of the microphones to send a message to Florentino Pérez, its president. “I always want more. I always pay more attention, I always train more. My age, 33, doesn’t mean much. You can play at a high level at that age, the examples are there. I train hard all week to be ready for the matches. What I like is the high level. I have a lot of fun with this team. (…) My plan is day after day. I enjoy every practice, every game. I am under contract until 2022. The door is open, if the president wants to extend me, I am listening. I am lucky to be in this club. I take care of myself after each training to be at the level of Real Madrid. I’m waiting, ” he concluded. To the best of my mind.
