Karim Benzema made a shocking revelation about how Cristiano Ronaldo failed to send him a congratulatory message after he won the Ballon d’Or award in France.

Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo made for excellent Real Madrid colleagues during a time when Los Blancos dominated both domestically and in Europe, and Ronaldo amassed 450 goals and 120 assists during that time.

With 329 goals, Karim Benzema is the club’s second-leading scorer; several of those goals were scored at the same time as the Portuguese superstar.

The two became close during their time spent together in Spain, and Jose Mourinho claimed last year that Ronaldo was “in love” with Benzema while he was managing Real Madrid.

At Real Madrid, Benzema had long been somewhat of a supporting character, obscuring superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos, and others.

But ever since Ronaldo left to join Juventus in the summer of 2018, Benzema has stepped up to become the most important player at Real Madrid and the most effective scorer for them.

The player also claimed that he never wants to stop playing until he wins the Ballon d’Or award. Benzema had always believed in his quality and the ambition that he could win, which is why he kept pushing.

The striker is already in the World Cup mood and is looking forward to winning the prestigious trophy.

He is one of the big stars of the tournament, and his country, who are the defending champions, have been tipped to win the trophy.

Although Benzema heads into the World Cup after having been battling against injury, his form hasn’t been at the level it was in 2021–22.

The amount of matches played during that period had stopped a lot of world-class players from going to the World Cup.
