Real Madrid striker Benzema mocks Giroud after comparison question

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has laughed off comparisons with Chelsea centre-forward Olivier Giroud.

Benzema replied to a question asking about comparisons with Giroud with a motor racing analogy.

"Don't confuse Formula 1 with karting, I'm Formula 1," he said in response to the question about Giroud.

He also spoke with Ronaldo Nazario for a while and revealed how much he admired the Brazilian growing up.

"I was speaking with my fans and saying that I fell in love with football when I saw you on TV," Benzema told the Brazilian.

"For me, you're the best of all.

"They said Zinedine Zidane as well, but I said you."
