Ex-Real Madrid coach Capello: Benzema on Di Stefano level now

Former Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello has likened Karim Benzema to Alfredo di Stefano.

Benzema hit a hat-trick last night for Real's Champions League win at Chelsea.

In reaction, Capello said: "Benzema is a versatile centre-forward, reminiscent of Di Stéfano, which may not mean anything to young people, but it says a lot to those who know football.

"He participates in the maneuver, scores important goals and is a leader on the field. He is Ancelotti's best man.

"In addition, Real Madrid has a very compact and careful defence, it is not easy to mark him and he has a great ability to break and do damage up front."
