The former Real Madrid and France legend Zinedine Zidane has said that he is confident that the French international Karim Benzema will fulfil his potential. The former Lyon striker moved to the Santiago Bernabeu a few seasons ago for £ 35 million. He was expected to be part of the best cream of strikers that the club has experienced over the years. However, it has taken him three seasons to settle at the club. Now, he has been showing the kind of form that persuaded Real Madrid to part with £ 35 million. Speaking after the few round of Spanish league matches, the former Real Madrid midfielder Zinedine Zidane has said that he is sure that Benzema will become better as the years go by.

Last season was extremely good for Karim Benzema, but he is yet to open his account this season. Despite struggling for form at the start of the new season, Zinedine Zidane is confident that he will come good. He has also said that everyone knows that Karim Benzema is one of the best strikers in the world. Meanwhile, the former midfielder has also said that France should do a lot better than the 1-0 win over Finland if they are to win the World Cup.

“Benzema still has to hit top form and be on top of his game again, but the entire world knows that he is a great player. I just know that it won’t be long before he fulfils his full potential at last, both for Real Madrid and for France. It was a good game for France in my opinion simply because they bagged the full three points. The coach needs a bit of time to find the best solutions for everything,” Zidane stated at a press conference.
