Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has admitted that he needs to improve if he wants to score more goals with Real Madrid.
Despite the fact that he has recently scored two goals to help the Spanish team draw with Borussia Dortmund, the French international has come under intense criticisms for his form this season.
Karim Benzema said that he is aware of the critics and that he is working hard in order to improve. He admitted that he has not been consistent since the start of the season and that he wants things to change. He said that he is doing extra work on the training ground in order to improve his finishing and feels that he is becoming better each week.
The French player said that it is not easy to play at a club such as Real Madrid and that it is not guaranteed that you will score every week.
He said that fans and pundits want him to become more prolific in front of the goals and for this, he will have to improve. He knows that if he works hard in training, he will become better and able to score regularly.
Karim Benzema said that he is happy for Cristiano Ronaldo to have won the award and that the Portuguese forward deserve to be rewarded. He said that Ronaldo has been consistent throughout the season and that he has been working hard in order to reach this level.
He believes that Real Madrid can have a great season and that it is important that the players remain united on the pitch if they want to win trophies. As usual, he believes that Barcelona will be their greatest rival when it comes to La Liga but they will have to be wary of the threat posed by Atletico Madrid as well.
