Zinedine Zidane praised the versatility of Karim Benzema ahead of Real Madrid’s weekend match against Leganes.
“Benzema is compatible with everyone because he can bring all the good players together. Karim is a different player, he’s not a typical number nine. When I saw him start, he was playing more in midfield and out wide. He knows that he can do many things, he can score like a no.9 and he can do link-up play,” said Zidane.
Zidane also discussed Toni Kroos’ importance to the side amid various transfer rumors.
“Kroos is a very good player, not only for me. He’s done many good things in his five years here, he’s a calm player that doesn’t wilt under pressure. I like him, I’ve always liked him. You talk and will continue to talk about Toni and other players that I don’t want… all of them are important and good enough.”
