“People say I helped Ronaldo, but what he did to me…” Benzema demands respect for CR7

Karim Benzema is currently on another planet. The Frenchman has carried Real Madrid on his shoulders since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. When he was absent this season against Barcelona, ​​the Blaugrana humiliated Real Madrid at the Bernabéu.

Benzema is the symbol of Carlo Ancelotti’s team. On Wednesday, he scored a hat-trick again against Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals. But many admit it would have been more historic if Cristiano Ronaldo had not helped so much during the Lusitanian’s tenure at Real Madrid.

Karim Benzema arrived in the summer of 2009 at the same time as Ronaldo, joining the Portuguese who had already won the Champions League and the Ballon d’Or before signing with Real Madrid. For 9 seasons, the Frenchman was in the shadow of the Ballon d’Or five times and gave him a lot of passes when he could score himself.

In an interview with L’Equipe, Benzema explained that he does not really understand those who criticize Cristiano Ronaldo for his status at Real Madrid.

“People talk about how much I helped Cristiano, but he also helped me a lot. Benzema revealed to L’Equipe, “He is the player who gave me the most assists.

In Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo scored 32.7% of Real Madrid’s goals during his time at the club (450 out of 1,375). Karim Benzema has scored 32.1% of the team’s goals (124 out of 386) since the Portuguese left. This clearly shows that the Frenchman is no longer the same player and has taken on a new dimension.
