on record that he was not satisfied with Benzema’s attitude but now Benzema has quashed all those complaints and has already scored 3 goals this pre season.
Here is what he said: (Source Goal.com)
“Today, Karim thinks football like I do. He has everything to make a great season. He is much better than last year at this time. I think I managed to persuade him,” Mourinho said after the 3-1 victory over Hertha Berlin.
BenzemahimselfnowsaysthatRealMadrid and Jose Mourinho are starting to trust him and he feels comfortable here in Madrid.
Benzema says he wants to stay at Real Madrid for a long time and is hoping that he can payback Real Madrid the trust they have put in him. He said:
“I am very happy for this start to the pre-season because I have been working a lot, but the goals have arrived thanks to my teammates, who give me a lot of passes,” he told Cadena Ser.
“The coach and the club trust me and that is very important, I will always work to play.
“I feel very fine and I am working to be the starting striker of Real Madrid.”
I am going to end this post on the note that Real Madrid have beaten Hertha by 3 goals to 1. Ronaldo scored 1 goal and Benzema scored the other two goals. Pretty productive day for Real Madrid.
