Zidane Responds To Benzema Boos

Zinedine Zidane Responds To Karim Benzema Boos

By Kurt Buckerfield - Aug 28, 2017 07:56 AM @KurtLaduma

Manager Zinedine Zidane has responded to Karim Benzema getting booed in Real Madrid’s 2-2 La Liga draw with Valencia on Sunday night.

Ronaldo Names Former Barca Star Among His Six Successors

Los Blancos dropped points at home for the time since last season’s El Clasico loss to FC Barcelona in April, scoring just twice from their 22 shots in the match.

The French striker failed to hit the back of the net with his eight efforts at goal, much to the home crowd’s dismay. Benzema received some whistles for his missed chances, which Zidane feels is normal.

"The crowd helped us and they can do what they want," he told Movistar Plus.

"What happened with the jeering of Karim Benzema is not a problem."

The manager was also asked how he would welcome the striker at the next training session.

"I'll tell him to keep working," he added.  

"The most difficult thing is to have chances to score. He didn't score, but has worked a lot and you can't blame a player for missing chances."

10 Active Stars Who’ve Never Won The Champions League

Twenty-one-year-old Marco Asensio was the scorer of both Real’s goals, while they were without the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo.

Do you think Benzema is still the right man to lead the line for Real? Let us know in the comments section below.

Big Benz is more useful wen CR7 is there. Alone he cant score but keeping the defence under preasure. I dont think he tries to practice how to score like Asensio n CR7.

We need a striker who will compete with Benzema. As for Bale, he should be allowed to go to Man United and Asensio will take his place.
