The Frenchman won the award for best player in the league last season and was also voted best player in 2019/20 by the fans.
Karim Benzema was one of the stars of the Marca Awards when he received two prizes. The Real Madrid forward won the Alfredo Di Stéfano Trophy as the best player in the 2019/20 LaLiga season. The Frenchman fired Real Madrid to their 34th league title, scoring 21 goals.
 
During the virtual gala he explained: "I'm very happy to win this award, I'm proud and happy. It's recognition of the hard work I've put in since I signed for the club in 2009. I train harder every day to help the team win and every game is a new test for me. I want to prove that I can play in the best team in the world. I would also like to thank all the fans for the award. I hope I can continue like this. Whenever I talk to the fans, they tell me that they love the way I play. Those words stick with me and on the pitch I try to make people happy".
