Benzema has thrived under the French great.
“He was a top player and now he’s a good coach, with a lot of experience. He offers the team a lot, he gives us confidence, gives us his ideas on how to play, and that’s all positive for us.
“Both my teammates and I are learning from him every day because we know that he was a great player, and that he knows a lot about the game,” said Benzema.
“I’ve got to keep on working hard to help the team. The most important thing is that we get the wins, it’s not all about me scoring. I’m a striker and when I get the chance to score, I will, but the most important thing is that I put in a good performance to help the team and my teammates.”
