José Mourinho praises Karim Benzema
Fired from Tottenham last April, José Mourinho bounced back to Roma. He is making his return to Italy, 11 years after his stint at Inter Milan (2008-2010). A few hours before the kick-off of the first match of Euro 2020, the former coach of Real Madrid gave his comment on the return of Karim Benzema in Blue, 6 years after his exclusion from the Team of France. “The best compliment you can give Karim Benzema is that Cristiano Ronaldo was in love with him at Real Madrid,” he revealed. “And for Cristiano, being in love with another striker means he’s doing a lot for Cristiano. And Karim does a lot for every striker who plays around him. He’s probably the only number 9 I know who isn’t selfish in his game, ”said José Mourinho.
Wink to attract the striker to AS Roma?
The Portuguese technician was full of praise for the 33-year-old Habs! The new manager of La Louve emphasizes that “Karim Benzema’s vision of the game is incredible”. “The way he likes to play football is to evolve with a lot of freedom,” concluded the “Special One”.
