The French striker Real Madrid is not as clumsy as what can be heard.
In the heat of criticism, singled out for lack of efficiency, Karim Benzema is one of the best strikers in the history of European football.
The number 9 Real Madrid, which will turn 30 in December, can be questioned, but the numbers do not lie.
With a whopping 50 achievements in 96 games, KB9 is fifth in the league scorers standings. A statistic that may seem crazy in view of the unmistakable amount of criticism received by the former Lyon, but which is nevertheless very real.
Benz ‘surpasses notably legends of football like his countryman Thierry Henry, Zlatan, or Andriy Shevchenko, in term of realism in the queen competition in Europe.
Only four players scored more than the French: CR7, Messi, Raúl and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. In addition, having only five goals ahead of Benzema, it could be caught by the Madrilenian this season.
