Florentino Perez Says Karim Benzema Deserves To Win This Year's Ballon d'Or

Florentino Perez Says Karim Benzema Deserves To Win This Year's Ballon d'Or

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has called for Karim Benzema to win this year's Ballon d'Or after a remarkable campaign.

Benzema netted his 20th and 21st goals of the season last night as Madrid defeated Villarreal 2-1 to seal their 34th La Liga title.

The Frenchman has been the focal point of Zinedine Zidane's attack this season following injury to summer signing Eden Hazard and the lack of play time for Gareth Bale.

Following the title victory, Perez spoke to Spanish media and heaped praise on the 32-year-old.

"Benzema should be the Ballon d'Or," he bluntly stated per Daily Mail.

"I have not seen any player have as good a year as him."

Karim Benzema Scores Incredible Volley For Real Madrid Against Valencia

published at4 months ago

Madrid have won an incredible ten games in row en route to the league title while Barcelona have slipped up since football's restart.

Benzema opened the scoring inside half an hour last night before netting a penalty in the second half.

The penalty did come with controversy however as Ramos originally tried his hand at the Johan Cruyff technique with the Frenchman.

Instead of smashing the spot-kick or even attempting a Panenka, the Spaniard touched the ball forward to Benzema who slotted home his second goal of the game.

However, the Real No.9 had actually encroached into the area too early and the penalty had to be retaken, with Benzema then converted.

Do you think Karim Benzema has a chance of winning the Ballon d'Or?
