Real Madrid striker Benzema full of praise for coaches he's worked with

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema appreciates all the coaches he's worked with.

When asked about the coaches whom have had the biggest impact on his career, Benzema struggled to choose just one.

"I've learned something from everyone," he said.

"[Jose] Mourinho, [Carlo] Ancelotti, Guerin, Zidane. They've all given me something."

Being the best striker in the world isn't something he thinks about too often.

"I never asked myself that," Benzema said when asked when he knew that he could be the world's best No.9.

"I think about being the best player in the world, irrespective of being a No.9, No.10 or whatever."
