Karim Benzema Wants Ballon d’Or Award
He has revealed that winning the Ballon d’Or award will really make him happy. The player got a recall to his country following his impressive form in his club Real Madrid. Karim Benzema said: “It’s a trophy that all the players want.” “Ever since I was little, I have been thinking about winning that award. If I am in any way close, then it is because of my teammates.”
Benzema is expected to become domestic teammates with Kylian Mbappe in the Spanish capital in 2022, yet the veteran has spoken glowingly about playing with him at the international level to this point. The striker speaking about Mbappe said: “I enjoy being with him in the national team.”
He also said: “In the future, why not? He’s a great player, but you have to respect PSG. I have always said it, and I’ll say it again. I hope that we will play together someday.”
