Prior to training at Real Madrid City, Florentino Pérez has presented Karim Benzema with a commemorative shirt to mark the forward's 350th appearance with the Whites. The Frenchman reached the figure in the win over Éibar at Ipurua (1-4), which also saw him net a double.
Benzema: “I hope there are still many games to come”
“I'm very proud to have reached this milestone because it's a lot of games playing for the club of my dreams. I feel very pleased, I'm happy, and I hope there are many more to come. The president has given me a shirt with the number on it, which makes me very happy. He has always supported me, ever since the moment I signed for the club and I'm very settled here”.
“The match against Éibar was special. The whole world is watching Real Madrid and we played a great game, with lots of chances and goals. We only conceded one and everyone played out of their skin, from the goalkeeper to the forwards and the guys on the bench. It was good preparation for Tuesday's game and I hope we can carry on like this and win the league. In Naples, we've got an important clash against a very strong team, but we have to play our game in order to win it and qualify for the next round”.
