Benzema has sometimes been criticised for his lack of goals, despite not being a typical number 9. Ex-Real Madrid player Martín Vázquez came out to defend the French striker.
Karim Benzema has been one of the best players at Real Madrid for the last decade. At his lowest points, he was criticised for his lack of goals, despite not being a pure number 9.
Despite the total confidence shown to him by Zinedine Zidane, his lack of goals has often led to calls to transfer the striker, something that must get to the Frenchman.
However, Benzema’s role is highly valued by both his teammates and ex-pros, like Martín Vázquez.
“Benzema is once again one of the best, if not the best. He doesn’t care who his strike partner is. He knows how to make the right decisions depending on where he is at the time”, he said in a statement to ‘TMW’.
