Real Madrid coach Zidane: If you love football, you appreciate Benzema

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is delighted with the form of Karim Benzema.

Benzema struck twice in their 6-0 Champions League rout of Galatasaray.

And Zidane said, “His numbers speak volumes, anyone who loves football sees the quality he has.

"We have spoken a lot recently about his goals but he is an important player for the team because of his link up play.

"He hasn't changed from when he played with Cristiano, he is just more mature now, he is a father, a lot has happened in his life and that is shown on the pitch."
