Double scorer in Valencia this weekend with Real Madrid, Karim Benzema is driving the scorers as never before in Spain.
Author of 303 goals for Real Madrid, the 34-year-old center forward has definitely entered the pantheon of club merengue. More efficient from one year to the next despite the passage of time, Karim Benzema is unanimous at Real Madrid, a club of which he is the undisputed leader since the departures of Cristiano Ronaldo and then Sergio Ramos. It remains nevertheless underestimated by certain observers in France. At least that’s what Marcel Desailly continues to see when discussing with some of his friends as he told it in an interview with the Marca newspaper. Personally, the 1998 world champion is, on the other hand, a huge fan of Karim Benzema, whose return to the French team gives him enormous joy.

“He is a player who knew how to challenge himself after Cristiano left the club and also when they were together by being at his disposal. He has proven day after day that he is better than players like Higuain or Morata and we must not forget that Real Madrid had to decide who to keep. Florentino Perez has trusted him since he first traveled to Lyon to sign him and Benzema has overtaken his idol Ronaldo in some stats. What he achieves is incredible but it is not seen as such, it is weird. I speak with friends and when it comes to the best players of this generation, the ones that will be written in the history books, when I ask my friends in private, Benzema’s name does not come up automatically. And this is not normal! That’s how it should be, his stats are there, he’s brilliant in all aspects, as a forward and as a second striker ” underlined Marcel Desailly, for whom Karim Benzema is undoubtedly one of the best center-forward on the planet at the moment.
