Benzema backs former teammate to score more goals in Saudi league

Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo were wreaking havoc during their time at Real Madrid, and the forwards spurned the club to three Champions League trophies in a row.

Now both are plying their trades in the Saudi Pro League, but with different clubs. Benzema, who has backed the Portugal forward, has been impressed by Ronaldo’s goal-scoring spree this season.

Cristiano Ronaldo continues to surprise us with his goalscoring characteristics, and the former Real Madrid striker, who, in his late 30s, remains the top goal scorer in the league.

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most ruthless forwards we have witnessed in football. His transition into a striker during his early 30s has seen him getting better despite ageing.

He is the sort of striker who makes every chance count. And we are lucky to have witnessed him during his prime years.

However, for Cristiano Ronaldo scoring goals isn’t a new thing because we have watched him score goals on big occasions from Champions League nights to international football.

The forward is now closing on his retirement, and we will soon see him hang his boots, which will be the saddest day in football history.

Until then, he remains on the pitch, where he will continue to deliver. Benzema who has played alongside him at Real knows who a complete player he is and hits back at those who question his Ronaldo qualities.

“Scoring in the Saudi league isn’t as easy as everyone thinks. I think Ronaldo having the most goals in 2023 at 38 is really impressive. He is the greatest player of all time.”

It appears Ronaldo is now enjoying his time playing football, and it doesn’t really matter if he wins any more personal accounts. The forward knows he has reached the twilight of his career and hopes to finish it with a proper farewell.
