Former French player Sidney Govou, has claimed that Benzema is a more complete player than former Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Benzema was a vital player for real Madrid this season, as Real Madrid beat Barcelona to the laliga title, he scored 21 goals in the process.

The Real Madrid striker played for Lyon for five years alongside Govou, who has now compared him to France legend Henry.
I think he has largely the level of Thierry,’ Govou told L’Equipe.

‘Thierry really impressed me because he was not only a fast player but he had the ball. But Karim is more complete.

‘He also has a kind of presence because he is smaller and less athletic. Karim has always been a top player. If you love football, it’s impossible not to love him.’

Madrid president Perez last week, led calls for Benzema to win the 2020 Ballon d’Or, but this year’s – has now been canceled because of the covid 19 pandemic.

Benzema scored four times in his last four LaLiga matches, including both goals in Real’s 2-1 win over Villarreal which secured the domestic title for Real Madrid.

The striker will now hope to replicate this laliga season performance in their quest to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Manchester city in the Champions league.
