Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has hit out at criticism of his workrate.

Benzema denies falling out with coach Carlo Ancelotti.

"What attitude?" said Benzema.

"Carlo Ancelotti did not say (that I was not working enough). He said that me and Angel Di Maria did not have the same share of defensive work.

"I'm a frontman. Of course I'm the first defender but I won't do the job of a full-back or a midfielder," he said.

"It's not a question of attitude. You talk about attitude when a player does not want to play football. But I walk on to the pitch, I want to play football.

"For example, when I play for France... I run almost 10 kilometres per game. It's unfair because I do run."
