Karim Benzema: Ronaldo makes it so easy for the rest of us

Karim Benzema has said team mate Cristiano Ronaldo makes it easier for the rest of his Real Madrid colleague to play football because he is just so good and can see things that others can’t.

The 29-year-old forward grabbed two goals in Real’s win at Getafe on Sunday, rounding off a great week for the Ballon d’Or winner.

Frenchman Benzema assisted the opening goal with a brilliant piece of skill to bring the ball back from a tight position on the byline and cross for Ronaldo to slot home. Manager Carlo Ancelotti praised him in his press conference afterwards.

But speaking to reporters, Benzema hailed he fellow forward, saying: “I always work to be as good as I was in this game. Cristiano is the best in the world and with him it is easier.”

Benzene went on to discuss the strength of the team now and how happy he was to get back on track following the exit from the Copa del Rey during the week. He said the players want to be successful and find the form that saw them win 22 games in a row at the end of last year.

“We have played many games, but we have a team good enough to handle it. For me, Madrid are the best team, but now it is very difficult because the teams are coming back strong against us,” he stated.
