Real Madrid management defend Benzema against boo-boys

Real Madrid management are standing by underfire striker Karim Benzema.

Benzema was booed and jeered relentlessly by home fans during victory over Getafe on Sunday.

The Frenchman, however, is being "shielded" by management, says Marca and coach Carlo Ancelotti will have no qualms handing him a seventh consecutive start tonight against Elche.

"I think the whistles for Benzema are motivation, I've heard whistles for Di Stefano also," said Florentino Perez, the Real president.
