Real Madrid defender Varane: Benzema so radiant and happy

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has hailed the LaLiga season of Karim Benzema.

Benzema may be one of the players impacted by the cancellation of the 2020 edition of the Ballon d'Or, but Varane was quick to praise the performances of his former international teammate.

"I wouldn't say it was the best season of his career, but that's only because I've known him for a long time," he said.

"I'm glad to see him so radiant and happy, he is at the very top of his game in a difficult position.

"He has assumed his role as leader of the attack."
