After the La Liga match against Athletic, Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane replied (3-1) when asked if double scorer Karim Benzema is the best French forward of all time.
“Yes, in my opinion. He’s proving it and he’s been playing for a long time for Real. He played over 500 games and scored a lot. His stats speak for themselves. He’s the one for me and that’s clear. He’s been a more flexible player, and now he’s not just a ‘nine.’ He doesn’t just worry about goals, so I love him for that,” Zidane told Marca.
