Khedira defends Real Madrid strikers

Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira insists they have the best attack in the game.

Question marks have been placed over the quality of Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain.

But Khedira says: “We have an incredibly offensive team, with the best strikers in the world. Cristiano Ronaldo, Özil, Higuain and Benzema are first-class forwards. It’s really important to keep a balance, a solid defence and to not merely give it all on offense."

Regarding his role on the pitch, Khedira said: “I think that one of my duties as a midfielder is to keep proper balance between defence and offense."
