Champions League: Complete Player, Gets Better Every Year – Wenger Hails Real Madrid Star

Must read

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has heaped praises on Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, following the Los Blancos’ Champions League round of 16 second-leg 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night in Spain.

Benzema scored a hat-trick as Real Madrid defeated PSG 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu to advance to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Kylian Mbappe scored a goal for PSG as Real Madrid qualified for the Champions League last-8 on a 3-2 aggregate victory.

And Wenger believes the France international is getting better every year, adding that he admires his game.

He described Benzema as a complete football player with “supreme intelligence.”

Speaking on BeIN Sport (via Mirror), Wenger said: “For me, he is the complete football player – he has absolutely everything. What I like about Benzema is that he’s a team player and everything he does looks simple. You always think you could do what he does – that is supreme intelligence.”

The 72-year-old added: “He has taken a new dimension since Ronaldo left. He took more responsibility and he grew. I must say I admire the year 1987 – Benzema is 87, so is Suarez, Messi and Cavani. Benzema looks like he’s getting better every year. I’m a big admirer of his game.”
