Florentino Perez calls for 21-goal Karim Benzema to win Ballon D’Or as Frenchman strikes twice to seal LaLiga title for Real Madrid.
Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez called for Karim Benzema to be given the Ballon d’Or after he scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season to hand his team the title.
Madrid captain Sergio Ramos then asked Perez to give him a new contract. And Zinedine Zidane said winning the league topped his Champions League hat-trick.
There was a surreal feel to Madrid’s 34th league title win with the players celebrating on the pitch at the end of the game. But it took nothing away from the satisfaction of having beaten Lionel Messi’s Barcelona and done it without Cristiano Ronaldo.
Madrid’s French forward has 21 goals for the season and is just two behind La Liga top scorer Messi.
“Benzema should be the Balon d’Or,” said Madrid’s president. “I have not seen any player have as good a year as him.”
