The Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has stated that this team will not give up because they are Real Madrid. The team has fallen 16 points behind the leaders Barcelona in the Spanish la Liga, while they are also offering great position in the other two major trophies as well.
The French striker Karim Benzema was one of the main reasons for the club winning the league title last season, but he has not been at his best this time around. He has managed to score just five goals in all competitions this season, while he has also suffered a number of injury problems as well.
The team will be having some important matches to play in the month of February. They will be playing against the Premier league club Manchester United in the two legs of the Champions league last 16 stage. They will also be playing in the second leg match against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. Barcelona and Real Madrid managed to draw the first leg 1-1, which now gives the Catalan club an advantage since the second leg is at home. Benzema has stated that despite the struggles faced by the team this season, the players will never give up because they play for Real Madrid.
“We can play better. We’re disappointed. We have to fight to the end in the league, even though it is very difficult to win. We have to stick together. We have the same objective and we’re not going to throw in the towel. There’s a long way to go. We all want to win titles. We are still in the Champions League, which is a special competition, and have the second leg of the cup against Barcelona. You never know what can happen,” said Benzema, who has made 18 appearances in all competitions.
