Benzema's future at Real is in doubt over his poor form this season.
But Mijatovic told Marca: "Benzema is a very good player, he took his time getting used to the pressure of Real Madrid, it is a unique pressure, and in Madrid there is no pressure like this at another club, you have to give him time and space.
"He is a great player who can score many goals. They should reassure him and with this, he will respond."
