Benzema: I was to blame for slow Real Madrid start

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema blames himself for the slow start to his Spanish Liga career.

Benzema has admitted he might not have done enough to deserve a starting spot at Real Madrid in the past.

"I know when I play well and when I do it badly and if at any moment I have played less, it is because I did not make enough of an effort to deserve it," he told AS.

"What is key for me is that I have recovered my speed, I can't guarantee that I will score three goals in every match, but I will do everything possible to score at least one."
