Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid manager has named Karim Benzema as the best French striker ever.
During an interview with the press after a 3-1 win against Atletic Bilbao on Tuesday night, Zidane said; “He’s the best, and without playing a really good game today, he scored twice. He always shows up, that’s what great players do.
He was also asked if he believed Karim Benzema deserved to be ranked ahead of other players such as Raymond Kopa, Thierry Henry, Jean-Pierre Papin and Michel Platini.
He answered “For me, yes”, he shows it with what he’s doing, and has played at Real Madrid for a very long time, more than 500 games.
“His goals, trophies, and many more speaks for themselves. For me he’s the best, yes, it’s clear,” Zidane concluded.
