La Liga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 13/11/2017

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has stated that his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo is more selfish than he is in front of goal

The Frenchman has been criticised for his poor form in front of goal this season, Benzema and Ronaldo at Real Madrid nearly a decade, the duo both joining the La Liga champions before the 2009-2010 season.

Benzema, however, he has no issue with that and says he and the Portuguese have a good relationship.

“At Real, I score, but when the guy who is next to you scores 50 per season (you cannot do anything),” Benzema told Canal+.

“It's different from how I played at Lyon. I just like football and winning titles. I'm having fun.

“Ronaldo and I, we get on well. I like playing with him. He likes to play with one touch of the ball. He is more selfish than me, but that's normal.

“That does not bother me. Finally, it's good for the team.”

Ronaldo and Benzema have each bagged just one La Liga goal this season.

Benzema has scored 183 goals for Real Madrid since his arrival at Santiago Bernabeu, while Ronaldo has hit the back of the net on 414 occasions for Los Blancos.
