Inter Milan signing Belfodil happy with Benzema comparison

Inter Milan signing Ishak Belfodil is flattered to be compared with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

Belfodil signed for Inter this summer from Parma.

"It is a compliment for me and it's not the first time I have heard that, but I don't want to think about it," he told L'Equipe.

"It is only normal that there will be comparisons, seeing as we share origins and football characteristics.

"I ran a risk when I first went to Bologna, but I wanted to believe in it. At Lyon everyone said they were counting on me, but ultimately there was very little faith in me. I had little playing time, but I have no rancour."
