“Benzema is a leader. If we’re here, it’s partly because of him. He scored a lot of goals.
“Now for the Ballon d’Or… Are there any doubts? I don’t think anyone has doubts about that.
For us he’s the most important player, he’s the most efficient player in the world at this moment.
“He was important to win the Champions League. He didn’t score in the final but with his goals, we played the final.
“He scored against [Manchester] City, against Chelsea, against Paris [Saint-Germain]. He’s so important for us, there’s no doubt that at this moment he’s the best,”Ancelotti told Movistar.
Talking about world-class Players, Karim Benzema must be on the list. He’s seen as one of the best Strikers in the world. So do you think that this year’s Balon D’or title should go to Benzema?
