Benzema future Ballon d’Or? For Zidane, there is no doubt


Zinedine Zidane is convinced that his former player will be crowned Ballon d’Or next October.

The 2021/2022 season is over. In a few months, France Football will award its prestigious Ballon d’Or trophy to the best footballer of this campaign. Karim Benzema is considered the favorite to win this award for the first time in his career.

KB9 has a lot of support, including that of his former coach Zinedine Zidane. The latter gives him his vote, while indicating that he does not really need it since he has totally stepped on the competition. “It’s not only me who says that he should be given it, it’s the whole world! It’s more than deserving,” ZZ told L’Equipe.

“Benzema is just exceptional
Benzema is coming off the best season of his career and Zidane says he’s not surprised at all because he realized, “It doesn’t surprise me. It’s just continuity. I knew he was capable of what he does. He’s been very good all the time at Real. The only thing here is that he’s just exceptional”.

Zidane went on to say that he feels very close to his compatriot and not only because he had him under his command for several seasons in Madrid: “There is affection. Karim is like the little brother I didn’t have. I’m the last of the family (…) Our relationship has gone from strength to strength. We got to know each other when he arrived in Madrid, when I was an advisor to the president and then second to Carlo (Ancelotti). Now we see each other a little less. We send messages. But he knows where I am. I know where he is.
