Karim Benzemamain actor of the comeback of the Real Madrid in front of PSG by Champions League, has acknowledged that this could be “his best season with the Spanish team shirt”. As you remember, the French striker has entered the golden books with 309 goals, one more than Don Alfredo di Stéfano.
“I don’t know if it’s my best game because I also remember the ‘Champions’ final against Liverpool. If it is, it’s because of the goals, because there are three in a very important game. It’s a comeback, we lost 0-2 in the tie. It was a very big game, but also for all the players. It may be my best season because every year I want to do more than the previous one and I’m on a good path now.a”, he said on Real Madrid TV.
“I am happy and proud. But it’s for the whole team, it’s everyone’s effort. The team, the people who were on the field, the people who did not enter the field and who help their teammates as well. Also the coaches, the fans outside. With all that, it was a magical night for all”, he added.
Benzema analyzed the fact of being in third position in the list of the club’s all-time top scorers: “It’s a dream because (Di Stéfano) is a Madrid legend. I remember my first day here he was with the president and he gave me a hug. It is a legend. Being in his place makes me very proud, very happy and gives me more strength to go higher. He gave me the advice to enjoy this great club”, he recalled.
“These are very important figures. I signed for this club, the first thing to win titles. I didn’t plan to score goals like I’m doing right now, but I always wanted to be inside people’s heads, the madridistas, one day, and I think I’m on the right track”, he added.
“When I arrived I was very young and I didn’t know what Madrid meant, the best club in the world. He came from Lyon and was a very happy young man. But always in my head was the idea of wanting to succeed one day here. Little by little, and now that I understand perfectly what Madrid is, I’m going in the right direction. I feel at home. I really like Madrid, the people and the country. The people are fine with me and I enjoy every day here, in training and in games”, he commented.
