Real Madrid coach Zidane: Is Benzema's place non-negotiable?

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insists Karim Benzema still has to fight for his place.

Zidane denies Benzema's place is guaranteed.

“Is Benzema's place in the side non-negotiable? Look, we need everyone.

"We'll play 60 games this season. We need everyone, not just Morata and Benzema," said Zidane.

"We also have Mariano and there'll be moments when he'll need to play. He's part of the squad and we have a number of players who can play there. We decide on a game-by-game basis. Karim is feeling better and he's happy."
