Real Madrid goalscorer Benzema: Fans have always supported me

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was delighted with his part in their Champions League win over Napoli.

The striker scored Real's opener in the triumph.

Benzema stated: "It was a great night and all of us put in a great performance. I'm really proud and happy with my display today. I now feel very good and after scoring the first goal, I felt that the fans were with me, that's really important for your confidence.

"Since a young age, I've lived with criticism. I work hard and sometimes you score a lot of goals and on other occasions you don't. I'm not a striker who always wants to score, I like to do my bit for the team and that's why I work so hard in training. I enjoyed myself today, I got my goal and it was a game with a lot of action."

He added: "We know that we're here at Madrid, the best club in the world and the fans always support me. At times, it's to be expected that I come in for criticism, but I'm always here trying to help the team. We're all very happy because we put in a good performance and we're now looking to continue on in this vein in LaLiga."
