Karim Benzema has made history.
He scored two goals last night to go equal with Real Madrid legend Puskas. Benzema has scored 242 goals for club now.
“I didn’t imagine anything like this, I’m very happy. I’ve been working for a long time now and I always put it in to keep improving,” Benzema said, via the club’s website.
“I hope I can keep going. I’m very happy to be playing for this club.”
“It wasn’t an easy game due to the opposition who made it hard, but we won and didn’t concede,” Benzema said.
“It’s very important because Valencia are a very good team. For the second goal everything happened so fast.
“It was a cross from Marco, I control it, I shot with the left foot and it went in. It looks easy, but you have to do it so fast.”
Benzema has been one of the more important for Real Madrid this season. He has scored 16 goals in the league and is solely responsible for Madrid’s title challenge going forward. His two goals last night against Valencia stands testament to the importance of the French forward in the Spanish capital.
