A precocious talent and widely considered to be one of best all-round forwards in the world, Benzema can make his own chances, finish clinically in the area and make assists for his teammates. He always places his talents at the service of the team.
His game is based on power and movement on both wings, skill on the ball and deadly finishing in the last few metres of the pitch. From the beginning of his career at Olympique Lyonnais it was obvious that he would be a great player. During his spell at the French club he collected several collective and individual honours such as the Bravo Award in 2008. It was therefore no surprise that Real Madrid did not think twice about recruiting such a special talent and signed him the following summer.
He was already an experienced player at the highest level and the move to Madrid meant fulfilling one of his biggest dreams: wearing the same shirt as his hero, Ronaldo Nazario. The French forward now wants to win with Real Madrid the one honour that has eluded him, the Champions League, a competition in which he has one of the best goalscoring averages.
