Real Madrid striker Benzema: Mourinho believes in me

Karim Benzema insists he's staying with Real Madrid. The France striker has been linked with a move away in January as Real eye Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao.

"The coach has worked hard with me on the mental factor of my game. Now I'm stronger in this regard. I've had many ups and downs since I came to Madrid, but I'm still here.

"Jose Mourinho is a great coach and very supportive. Pressure has been part of my life since I was in Lyon, but here it is more intense because I'm at the best club in the world."
