“We can make that a goal”

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema expressed his thoughts on the possibility of winning this year’s Ballon d’Or.

The Frenchman is in fine form for La Liga giants Real Madrid so far. The France international has scored 24 goals and provided nine assists from 27 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos.

The 34-year-old’s performances for Carlo Ancelotti’s side have made him a strong contender for 2022 Ballon d’Or. Benzema could be considered an early favorite for the award if he ends the season as strong as he has started.

Benzema has now admitted that he is delighted to have won this year’s prestigious award. However, the Real Madrid star insists he is focused on doing better for his team than he did last year.

He told the French TV show Telefoot [via Instant Foot on Twitter]:

“Winning the Ballon d’Or in 2022? Why not, we can set that as the goal, but I’ll do my best to do better than last year.”

Expressing his thoughts on who should be awarded the award, Benzema explained that it should be given to a player who has proven important to his team, scored in difficult periods and won it. title. He speak:

“[Finishing] 4th, 3rd, 2nd or 30th is the same, the important thing is to win it. Sometimes the list of awards, sometimes the number of goals, it changes every year. For me, the Ballon d’Or should be given to the man who carries his team, scores goals in difficult times and wins trophies. “

In addition to Real Madrid, Benzema has also shone in Didier Deschamps’ France team this season. He has scored 5 goals in 4 games for the world champions since October.

Real Madrid star Benzema finished fourth in the 2021 Ballon d’Or

While Benzema is in brilliant form this season, he has also had a campaign in the 2020/21 season. The Frenchman has contributed to a total of 39 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos.

However, the 34-year-old did not have a trophy to show for his efforts. Therefore, he could only finish in fourth place last year Ballon d’Or chart.
