Real Madrid great Guti: Benzema represents football at its most pure

Real Madrid great Guti hailed their amazing Champions League semifinal win against Manchester City.

Real won in extra-time after pulling back City late in the game.

Guti told TMW: "Spirit of sacrifice, heart, enthusiasm and football: these were the keys to Real Madrid's victory against Manchester City. In football anything can happen, nothing is impossible."

On Karim Benzema, he continued: "In his feet there is an incredible talent, but I did not expect this performance as a goal scorer. He is giving a lot to a Real who, after the farewell of Cristiano Ronaldo, needed goals. Benzema represents football at its most pure.

"In these last four weeks Real will play to win, as always. The players are professionals, they live and are paid to play football. They know that the prestige of their club is always at stake and I am therefore convinced that they will give everything without calculating, despite having already celebrated LaLiga."
