Real Madrid’s coach, Zinedine Zidane has claimed that the only thing that changed in his side since Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo left the Los Blancos for Juventus was that striker, Karim Benzema has become ‘more mature’.

Ronaldo left Real Madrid as their all-time highest goalscorer to join the Serie A champions, Juventus in the summer of 2018.

But Zidane feels Benzema is now like Ronaldo in the history of Real Madrid after the France star scored a brace in his side’s 6-0 victory over Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday night to reach the 50-goal mark for the club.

“His numbers speak for themselves,” Zidane said of Benzema as quoted by Marca after Real Madrid’s win over Galatasaray.
