Real Madrid coach Ancelotti: Benzema and Haaland together? What a question!

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti insists Karim Benzema doesn't have to be concerned over interest in Erling Haaland.

There's been talk that a move for the Borussia Dortmund striker could see Benzema squeezed out.

But Ancelotti said today: "Benzema and Haaland together? What a question! I'm sorry, I can't answer.

"But I can say that Benzema is a modern centre-forward. In the past, the nine was in the box and took in everything that came to hand. Karim is what modern football demands of a striker, finishing, playing, defensive work, not losing the ball…

"He is the perfect representation of what a centre-forward should be today."
