Real Madrid and French striker Karim Benzema have admitted that he is one of the many players who have dreamt of winning the Ballon d’Or at some point in their career. It has been almost impossible for any other player in Europe to be awarded the prize mentioned above in recent years, as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo dominated the award.
Karim Benzema Wants to Win Ballon d’Or
Speaking at the press conference, before they played their first Uefa Champions League against Italian to side Inter Milan, Benzema said:”[Winning the Ballon d’Or] does not make me lose any sleep. However, it is a dream for every player. “What I want is to help the team. Every player wants to win it, and so do I.”
He added:” For me, the Champions League is the top competition, and it is the one with the most pressure. “For me, there are no favourites. On the pitch, one thinks that one team will win and then another win. We have a great team, and we are going to fight for winning it.”
Benzema also said Real Madrid aims to come out victorious of this Champions League campaign which they later won thanks to Rodrygo 89th-minute strike.
