Real Madrid boss Mourinho: Blame Higuain for Benzema struggles

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho says Gonzalo Higuain is to blame for Karim Benzema's struggles this season.

Mourinho admits he currently prefers to go with Higuain ahead of the Frenchman.

"Higuain always works, I followed him at Real in the past, but I've never seen him at this level, he keeps making goals, assists, working and putting pressure," smiled Mourinho.

"If Benzema does not play, it's Higuain's fault."
