Zidane: «Benzema is incredible and deserves the Ballon d’Or»

Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane campaigned for Karim Benzema to win the Ballon d’Or and assured that he is “an incredible player” who deserves that maximum reward.

“He is a player who deserves to win the Ballon d’Or. He is an incredible player,” said on the Téléfoot program, who was his coach for five seasons at Real Madrid and the last Frenchman to have won that award, in 1998.

At 33 years old, the forward is going through the best moment of his career, both at his club, which has become the centerpiece of the team, and at the French national team, where after a return that seemed unlikely he has become the soul of the « bleus ».

«I had the great honor of being able to train him. He is a player who mixes easily with others, a player who knows how to do everything on the field. It’s the moment. It is an important moment for him and I hope he can be rewarded, ”added Zidane.

For the French attacker it is his tenth candidacy and his best final classification is the 16 he obtained in 1994. He entered the list of finalists for the first time in 2008, at only 21 years old and still as a Lyon player. EFE (HN)
