Karim Benzema was the star of the Premios Marca awards ceremony, where he was presented with the Pichichi Trophy as the leading marksman of the last LaLiga campaign, which saw him net 27 goals in 32 games. The captain was also the winner of the Alfredo Di Stéfano Trophy for the best player in LaLiga 2021-22, which ended in Real Madrid's 35th league title; plus the MVP Trophy as the fans' favourite player.
The Real Madrid forward had a few words to say during the event: “Alfredo Di Stéfano taught me to always believe in my dream and enjoy every moment spent at Real Madrid. That's exactly what I'm doing and I feel very much at home. I'm extremely fortunate to play for the best team in the world. I'm very proud of my work and this year will be tough but we're hungry and I'll try and deliver more than I did last year. The most important thing is to be out on the pitch and for people to enjoy themselves”.
“Winning the Pichichi Trophy is hugely important to me and I'd like to thank my teammates, the fans and the club. Our rivals want to win LaLiga every year and it changes all the time. We're a strong team and we're only concentrating on ourselves. Vini Jr. and Rodrygo are young but have already played a lot of games for Real Madrid and I'm sure they'll win this trophy too one day". Alongside Benzema, Carlo Ancelotti (Trofeo Miguel Muñoz de Oro) and Lunin (Trofeo Puerta Jarque al Juego Limpio) also scooped awards.
