Real Madrid boss Mourinho: Benzema must accept Kaka rap

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho had no problem with Kaka being critical of teammate Karim Benzema.

Kaka says Benzema needs to apply himself more.

And Mourinho reacted: "He said what we're all thinking, even Karim. He (Benzema) is a fantastic kid but has to give more. For his quality, we all expect and want a little more from him.

"He works for the team and has assisted with the goals of Cristiano (Ronaldo) and of (Esteban) Granero in Almeria, but it's true that he has fewer goals in the league than (defenders) Sergio Ramos and Ricardo Carvalho.

"We want a little more from him because it has the potential for that. If he was a bad player, we wouldn't be here talking about Benzema."
