Rio Ferdinand was crazy about the way Karim Benzema developed after Real Madrid no longer had Cristiano Ronaldo. Praise from the former England national team defender also came.
“This is the end of a business and keep scoring goals. He took Real Madrid to the top of the league. They fly and he is the flagship,” Rio Ferdinand said of Karim Benzema.
“When Cristiano Ronaldo was there, he had the humility to stay behind because he knew what the team needed.
“He is 34 years old and he is the best No. 9 in the world. He is on a different level. He has goals, assists, he can slow the game down,” continued Rio Ferdinand.
