Benzema: Anyone who criticises Messi doesn’t understand football

Karim Benzema has been enjoying his football in recent months, and has truly become the talisman of this Real Madrid side.

The forward has discussed the Ballon d’Or, his side’s upcoming clash against Paris Saint Germain and two of their main men, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.

Some people have been critical of Messi since he moved to PSG from Barcelona last summer, but Benzema has no doubts that he’ll be a success in the French capital.

“There’s no way he won’t do well,” Benzema told Telefoot.

“This is just a time where he’s adapting, because he’s not scoring many goals.

“Look at what he does on the pitch, though.

“Anyway, you can’t criticise a player like that. Anyone that criticises Messi doesn’t really understand football.”

He’s also set to face his French international teammate Mbappe in the upcoming Champions League knockout tie.

“Facing Mbappe? It’s going to be special,” he said.

“We’re good friends. Let’s see what happens

“He wants to win and so do I.”

Madrid have been given a tough draw against the French league leaders, but Benzema insists they’re ready.

“We’d like to have been drawn against someone else, but we’re prepared,” he assured fans.

Benzema came fourth in the final results for the 2021 Ballon d’Or, and believes he couldn’t have done any more.

“Like I’ve said since I was a child: being fourth, third, second or 30th are all the same,” Benzema commented.

“What matters is winning.

“Later, they told me that I hadn’t won enough trophies, but I couldn’t do any more.

“The Ballon d’Or for me is for someone who scores, assists, is there for the difficult moments.

“It’s a lot of things, not just winning trophies, but I’m not the one who gives out the trophy.”
