However, the starting goal in final win of Champions league over Liverpool and Julen Lopetegui was appointed as head coach has made the striker hopeful to make a significant role for himself in the 10th season.

As far as his interest for AC Milan is concerned, the 30 year old says he is highly focused to bounce back to be the best so as to be successful. Benzema says that one needs to continue winning silverware as the goal is always to achieve victory here as a team. He would be looking at having a good season, especially after his last unsuccessful season and try hard to etch his name in the history books of the club. He could not imagine possessing all that he has, but the prime objective of joining the club is to achieve silverware, be successful and gain lot many things.  He always knew he would have some hard seasons to deal with, but it’s insignificant as he is a part of the world’s best club and he is delighted to be there.
