Alvaro Odriozola has branded Real Madrid teammate Karim Benzema “the best number nine in the world”.
Benzema scored his 23rd goal of the campaign in Madrid’s 3-2 win over Huesca on Sunday night.
The 31-year-old has already scored almost three times the amount of La Liga goals that he managed last season and Odriozola has insisted that there is not a better “number nine” in world football.
“Karim has an incredible quality,” Odriozola told Real Madrid TV. “I always say that he is the best ‘number nine’ in the world and he has shown it again.”
Benzema has scored 215 goals in 458 appearances for Los Blancos since a 2009 move from Lyon, winning two La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys and four Champions League crowns during his time at the club.
