Arbeloa blasts Benzema critics: Ask Real Madrid's No7 who he wants to play with!

Former Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa is delighted for Karim Benzema after yesterday's win at Las Palmas.

Benzema marked his 400th appearance for Real with a goal in the victory.

Arbeloa said: "Benzema? This is his ninth season, for me, as a teammate, it has been a pleasure to play with him, and a challenge to face him in training...

"In my opinion, he is not one of the best attackers in the world, he's one of the best footballers in the world.

"It's a pity he does not score goals this season, but he's not just a scorer, he's doing so much.

"Who doubts Benzema? They should ask the number 7 of Madrid with whom he wants to play!"
