2 months ago 27

Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, has expressed a desire to win the Ballon d’ Or before retiring from football.

Benzema made the revelation at a press conference ahead of Real Madrid’s away Champions League clash with Inter Milan on Wednesday night.

“[Winning the Ballon d’Or] does not make me lose any sleep, although it’s a dream for every player,” Benzema said.

“What I want is to help the team. Every player wants to win it [the Ballon d’Or] and so do I.”

The France international added, “For me, the Champions League is the top competition and it is the one with the most pressure.

“For me, there are no favourites. On the pitch, one thinks that one team will win and then another wins. We have a great team and we are going to fight to win it.”
