We want six titles, says Karim Benzema


Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema is not allowing himself to bask in the glory of winning the Champions League, but look forward to winning more trophies with the club.

In an interview with sports paper Marca, the Frenchman said being part of the team that secured Los Blancos’ 10th European Cup was special but that the celebrations are over quickly before it’s time to move on.

Currently on duty with his national team for the World Cup, the striker said that is his immediate concern, but he also spoke about the aim of winning six trophies with Real Madrid next season.

“I went to Real Madrid to win La Décima. I dreamed all my life about that Cup and I’m very proud. I’ll never forget it. But football moves on quickly. Luckily, we now have the World Cup, but what we have done will always be in a player’s career,” Benzema said.
And about next season with his club, he added: “We want the six titles, Real Madrid have no choice. We have the Club World Cup, the Spanish Super Cup, the European one, the league, the Champions League again and the Cup. We have to win it all. And we can, because we are a great team.”

Benzema was also asked about how the potential signing of Luis Suarez would affect his position in the team and whether it would be a concern for him. Ever the diplomat, he responded by saying the Uruguayan would be a welcome addition.
“I’m not under any special pressure about it. Suárez is a great player and has played a great season. If he comes, he’ll be a help,” he stated.
