Fans claim that ‘Karim Benzema leaves as a bigger legend at Real Madrid than Cristiano Ronaldo’


Fans claim ‘Karim Benzema is leaving as a bigger Real Madrid legend than Cristiano Ronaldo’ as forward confirmed to leave after 14 years at Bernabeu

Real Madrid fans have claimed that Karim Benzema will leave as a bigger club legend than Cristiano Ronaldo.

It was confirmed on Sunday that Benzema, who has spent the vast majority of his career at Real, will leave after 14 years at the club amid suggestions he should join Saudi side Al-Ittihad.

Some Real fans believe Benzema, who scored 353 goals in 647 games for the club, has more legacy at the Bernabeu than Ronaldo, who scored 450 times for Real but left for Juventus in 2018.

During his time at Real, Benzema won the Champions League five times and also won four LaLiga titles and three Copa del Reys.

Here are some of the best tweets from Real fans about Benzema’s departure.

One fan wrote: “Benzema is a bigger legend in Madrid than Ronaldo. Most decorated Madrid player. Got a hat trick in the clasico.’

Another wrote: ‘It’s hitting so hard right now I can’t imagine your loss

‘Nueve, legend, winner and champion is the definition of Benzema, what a ride man, this departure I don’t know why strikes more than that of Ronaldo, goodbye legend, we will miss you so much. Karim the dream’.

Another said Benzema was the ‘greatest Madrid player of all time’. They wrote: “Benzema will leave Madrid as a bigger legend than Ronaldo, Madrid’s greatest player of all time.”

Another added: “Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid didn’t bother me too much, but Benzema’s departure now hit hard because a lot of the game in this current team revolves around him, but I guess I can understand why he is making the trip.” Farewell to a legend. Hope he gets the send off he deserves!”

One fan wrote: “Thank you for everything Karim Benzema. One of the best to do it.

Another wrote that Benzema ‘took Real to task’ after Ronaldo’s departure. They wrote: “I will find it hard to be more grateful to a player than I am to Benzema from 2018 until today. He put Real Madrid on his back when Cristiano left and Vinícius was still a child. The only reason we still won titles during this time. Eternally grateful for everything.

A Twitter user wrote: “Karim Benzema, the best striker of this generation”.

Another wrote: “I don’t think I will be able to handle Benzema leaving, it’s the whole system.” You can see how lost the team is whenever he’s not around. He has a lot more performance in a game other than just scoring goals and poaching, I will miss him a lot”.
