In the last season, Benzema played a vital role in lifting the league title after two poor seasons. And in the running season, it seems that Benzema is leading the team all alone. After last night’s match, the French boss Zinedine Zidane revealed his impression about the French striker. According to the opinion of the true French manager, Karim Benzema is France’s all-time best striker.
Because of the disturbance relation with the French national team manager Didier Deschamps, for a long time, the Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has not got the chance to wear the French national team’s jersey. If he could play regularly, he had the chance of breaking many records, many football analysts believe that still.
But that did not come true. Still, he is showing his true nature on the ground. Still, now, he is the main weapon in the Real Madrid attacking squad, and the coach Zidane has the utmost faith in the great French striker.
Karim Benzema is France’s all-time best striker
Now, if we notice the last night’s game of Real Madrid, they have defeated Athletic Bilbao in La Liga by a 3 – 1 goal. And the French striker has scored two goals as we speak. Karim Benzema’s effort for the team has impressed the legendary manager of Real Madrid Zidane.
He has been so impressed and regarded Benzema as the best forward in the history of French football and did not hesitate to declare that a little. If a manager like Zidane praises like that then perhaps we should focus on something.
The striker like Thierry Henry who is the highest goalscorer in the history of France and wearing the shirt of Barcelona and Arsenal, spent colorful seasons. Besides, he won the FIFA World Cup alongside Zinedine Zidane also. But it seems that when Zidane has praised his apprentice Karim Benzema, he just forgot his former teammate who once stood beside him.
Forget about Henry, Mbappe and Papin 🇫🇷
