Karim Benzema spoke about his dream about winning the Ballon d’Or prize. “It’s a trophy that all the players want,” Benzema told TVE.
“Ever since I was little, I have been thinking about winning that award. If I am in anyway close, then it is because of my teammates.”
Benzema is expected to become domestic teammates with Kylian Mbappe in the Spanish capital in 2022, yet the veteran has spoken glowingly about playing with him at international level to this point.
“I enjoy being with him in the national team,” Benzema added.
“In the future, why not? He’s a great player but you have to respect PSG. I have always said it, and I’ll say it again, I hope that we will play together some day.”
In being part of Les Bleus’ Nations League triumph, Benzema has won his first international trophy having missed out on the 2018 World Cup success, yet he firmly maintains that this latest success means a lot to him.
