The French and Real Madrid Striker commented on his relationship with his club colleague Cristiano Ronaldo in interview given to Canal+. Benzema stated that he gets on very well with Cristiano Ronaldo but also thinks that ‘Cristiano is more Selfish than him infront of the goal‘. But according to the Striker,it evidently benefits the team very well and he does not possess a problem as well
“At Real, I score, but when the guy who is next to you scores 50 per season (you can not do anything),” Benzema told Canal+ .
“It’s different from how I played at Lyon. I just like football and winning titles. I’m having fun.
“Ronaldo and I, we get on well. I like playing with him. He likes to play with one touch of the ball. He is more selfish than me, but that’s normal. That does not bother me. Finally, it’s good for the team.”
“I did not imagine that I would stay at Real Madrid for nine years,” Benzema said. “When I was at Lyon, I imagined moving to Real to win titles. The most difficult thing in Madrid is the pressure.
“The debate about me? It’s to sell papers. I got used to it. I focus on the football. With age, I have learned to stay calm.”
