”The best compliment you can give to Karim Benzema is that Cristiano Ronaldo was in love with him at Real Madrid. ”And for Cristiano to be in love with another attacking player means he does a lot for Cristiano — and he does a lot for every attacking player that plays around him. ”Karim is probably the only No 9 I know that is not selfish in his game. His vision is amazing, the way he enjoys his football is to play with lots of freedom. I can compare him with Harry Kane also in this sense.”
