Dubai: A big smile says it all. After 11 years (usually difficult attempts) and many years later, Karim Benzema finally became the king of Bernabeu.
On August 29, 2009, the 21-year-old Frenchman made his La Liga debut against Real Madrid against A Coruña. He played against Cristiano Ronaldo, Raúl, Habi Alonso, Marcelo and many other Galacticos go hand in hand with other international players.
Most of these star names are now retired or continue to be used, but Benzema continues.
When he played for Spain’s most successful club, sometimes he never seemed to get out of those long shadows.
On Thursday, Benzema’s two goals against Villarreal confirmed Real Madrid’s record 34th league title.
It is no exaggeration to say that this 32-year-old player has won this season alone, but it is not wrong to say that he has always been the main driving force of the team, such as the inspiration of young people and veterans. same. Moreover, the most important thing is to score goals.
Since the start of the season, Real Madrid has claimed 7 goals since winning 10 consecutive games.
In the 3-0 victory over Valencia in June, he scored as a strong contender for La Liga goals, and there is one game left this season, Benzema is only better than Lionel. Lionel Messi scored two goals less than 23 goals. The Pikichi trophy was awarded to the best scorer in La Liga.
For Benzema, this is nothing new. Last season, he scored 21 goals with Luis Suarez, second only to the Argentine master. Santiago Solari returned to Real Madrid in March 2019, and his manager, Zindin Zidane, always knew his worth.
“I know what a player Benzema is, everyone knows it. The number of goals he’s scoring is incredible,” Zidane said after Benzema had scored a hat trick against Athletic Bilbao in April of last year.
More than a year later, Real Madrid fans who often ridiculed Benzema for not being able to participate in the game on Thursday night to express their appreciation for the goal won in La Liga are regrettable.
In many cases, it is not who Benzema is. This is a problem for the most demanding supporters of football, but he is not.
He is not Ronaldo. Or Gareth Bale. Or Modric. Always bridesmaid.
His time in Madrid is not without running in. Jose Mourinho does not trust him, and it seems that there are not many people who manage the French national team.
Today, his critics got a reply, hoping that Benzema felt a heavy load on his shoulder.
Benzema, like his manager Zinidine Zidane, are the sons of Algerian immigrants. Like Zidane, his love in Africa and the Middle East may be more favored than his native France.
When the last whistle blew on Thursday night to show Real Madrid won the championship, Bezema’s hashtag became popular on Twitter in Arabic. Congratulations and praises are Benzema’s enjoyment.
Real Madrid President Florentino Perez (Florentino Perez) nominated him for an award that the club often seems obsessed with, which made him jump into the Benzema trend without hesitation. He said: “Benzema should be the Golden Globe Award (winner).” “I haven’t seen any player as good as him this year.”
It is very likely that Benzema will not win the Ballon d’Or. In fact, he is not strong enough to win the game.
However, in a truly outstanding Real Madrid career, this does not get rid of a truly outstanding campaign.
Benzema has now won three La Liga titles, the Champions League, two Reppa medals, three European Super Cups and four FIFA Club World Cup titles, while scoring 248 goals.
Personal awards and praise may return to other more well-known players such as Ronaldo and Messi. But today, as the world stops praising him, you can be sure of one thing. Benzema will continue to move forward.
