Real Madrid striker Benzema: Zidane wants us to have fun

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has revealed coach Zinedine Zidane has urged them to enjoy being back in action.

Los Blancos have returned to collective training and the French striker mentioned that his compatriot urged his team to enjoy their football when games get back underway.

"Zidane's message is to enjoy and play football," he told Real Madrid's official channels.

"Today we already played more with the ball than last week's [training], which was more physical.

"It is better to be with everyone and [train] with the ball because at home it is more difficult to be just touching the ball.

"[At home] it is more gym and fitness work."
