I lost respect for Jose Mourinho after cat jibe - Karim Benzema

Real Madrid

Real Madrid

Speaking to media about Ronaldo, the former Lyon forward said, "Ronaldo and I, we get on well".

The 29-year-old France outcast has been at Madrid since 2009 but his time appears to be coming to an end.

The Frenchman has scored a very respectable 182 goals in 377 Real Madrid games, but that's nearly nothing compared to Ronaldo's haul of 414 goals in 407 appearances. Unfortunately for Ferguson, and for the Reds in the long-term, Benzema elected to sign for Real Madrid.

"I don't have any problem in any case".

Real Madrid star Karim Benzema has revealed that he demanded respect from Jose Mourinho when the pair worked together at the Bernabeu. "As long as Didier Deschamps is coach, I will have no chance of returning to the French team".

Benzema said: "Mourinho helped me a lot".

"I may be timid but if you are going to laugh at me then I will react".

Karim Benzema, who moved to Real Madrid in the summer of 2009, shifted focus to his Madrid tenure saying that he did not imagine that he would stay at the club for so long.

Michael Owen has revealed if Karim Benzema hadn't made a decision to join Real Madrid he would never have signed for Manchester United.

"It felt that he though they were amusing and the truth is that if he was someone that I respected, then in that moment I lost my cool".

"I'm shy but if you make fun of me, I'll be direct". He likes to play with one touch of the ball. We met for an hour", Benzema continued, adding that he told Mourinho: "I am a footballer, you are my coach. "I love football, I love these tournaments".

As Deschamps' exile of the forward continues it has become abundantly clear that Real's main central striker will not be playing at the World Cup in Russian Federation. "Perhaps he is not motivated the same way that he was two years ago".
