Benzema determined to win over Real Madrid coach Mourinho
Portuguese coach Mourinho has come in to replace Manuel Pellegrini this summer and Benzema revealed the former Chelsea boss has been supportive ahead of the forthcoming season.
"I have forgotten about everything that happened last year," said the former Lyon striker to realmadrid.com. "I am convinced that I am going to score a lot of goals. I am headstrong and I will work hard to help my team with titles.
"Mourinho is great coach. He speaks to me on a regular basis, which is something I appreciate.
"Last season was very difficult for me because it was the first time I played outside my own country. My family and I are now much more adjusted to the city. I am happy to be here."
