After the brilliant display against Liverpool, Vinicius Junior is earning a lot of praises and when someone like Karim Benzema joins the party then you have to realize that Vinicius is walking on the right path.
“Vini is a very young player, but I believe in him because he has everything to succeed here,” Benzema explained in an interview with La Liga.
“This is why I talk a lot with him on the pitch, sometimes it’s a little loud, but that is because of him. He can give more because when he wants to be, he is a phenomenon.”
A Clasico victory will put Real Madrid right back into the title picture in Spain, and Benzema believes the match represents the ultimate test.
“The Clasico for me is the best game in the world,” Benzema added.
“Not only for me but for everyone, because there are two teams that have a lot of history. It’s always a very important match.”
Benzema is having a purple patch this season; still, he has his feet on the ground.
“I don’t know if this has been my best season,” Benzema confirmed.
“Every year I start from scratch and I want to improve on the previous one.”
“Now I’m on a scoring streak and if I can continue, with work to help my team win points and games, I’m going to do it. The important thing is to win.”
