Benzema Staying At Real Madrid

In the wake of Wayne Rooney signing a new contract at United, Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has told reporters he is set to stay in Madrid.

Benzema was one of the hottest young prospects in Europeoan football before moving to Real Madrid however he has found life difficult and has failed to make many first team appearances.

“It’s only normal that players are linked to Real Madrid. This is a great team,” Benzema toldPunto Pelota.

“Rooney and (Athletic Bilbao’s Fernando) Llorente are very good, but my job is to work hard and play more.

“(Sir Alex) Ferguson is a fantastic coach, but I play for Real Madrid.

“I feel more integrated now. My Spanish is better and I understand almost everything. I love Madrid.”

“I am working hard to earn more playing time,” he said.

“Once I play people will see what I am capable of. I am sure I will succeed with Real Madrid. I don’t have a single doubt.

“I have the mindset to play here. If I have to defend and run, I will. That is fine. I will work harder to play more and to prove to everyone that I am a good forward that can score a lot of goals and play pretty football.”
