"There are two strikers and we both play every other game. I’m not playing every week, and I play football to be involved in every match. I’m happy when I finish the 90 minutes, just like everyone else. If I play 60 minutes and score but hardly touch the ball, I don’t go home happy."
"I don’t doubt myself and my goals will come. You always have tricky patches in your career and I’ve been going through one, but I’m finding my feet and I feel fantastic. There is always criticism in France, but I know that comes with my status". — Karim Benzema [region locked video | alternate]
