Karim Benzema won the Spanish league title with Real Madrid this Saturday afternoon. A trophy that has been added to stratospheric performances for several months. For Florentino Perez, the Frenchman is untouchable for the Ballon d’Or, and he should have even been so earlier in his career.
Real Madrid have once again become the king of Spain and they owe a lot to Karim Benzema. The Frenchman has carried the Madrid attack all season with already 26 goals in 30 La Liga appearances and an impressive total of 42 goals in 42 matches in all competitions. Praised by all observers, he is logically adored by Madrid fans who owe him a lot for almost 13 years and especially over the last twelve months. In any case, its president Florentino Perez does not forget to greet him and to compliment the basic man he represents in the merengue workforce.
Benzema Ballon d’Or, the opposite would be scandalous for Perez
The very experienced and cunning president of Real Madrid did not forget on this day of coronation to insist on the chances of his colt to be golden ball. Accustomed to seeing his players fight for the individual trophy, he did not fail to promote Benzema a bit. For him it’s simple, not giving the 2022 Ballon d’Or to his French striker is just impossible.

” He has to win the Ballon d’Or this year, they can’t take it away from him. No one doubts that the next Ballon d’Or will be Benzema. Looking back, he should have won it sooner “, proclaimed dithyrambic the Madrid president after the title match against Espanyol. And the more time passes, the more this very subjective analysis of Florentino Perez begins to become the general opinion of the small world of football. It must be said that the Ballon d’Or 2021 awarded to Lionel Messi struggled to pass with many fans, and in particular at Real Madrid where KB9 should have been rewarded for a long time according to the socios. The year 2022 is off to a good start to put an end to this feeling of injustice on the side of the Casa Blanca.
