Real Madrid vs Eibar: Zidane speaks on Benzema’s performance

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has insisted that Karim Benzema is not overrated, after their 3-0 win against Eibar on Sunday.

Benzema was introduced in the second half of the La Liga fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu and set up Marcelo for the third goal in the 82nd minute.

However, the French striker has come under the spotlight this season, with only one league goal to his name.

“I’m happy because at the end of the day that’s what we like: players who know how to play and link up,” Zidane said.

“He didn’t score, but he started the move around the halfway line. It was a nice move for anyone who likes football.

“They’re never going to stop arguing about him. He’s very good and that’s that. He showed his quality in the half an hour he got today.

“For me he’s not overrated. Everyone can say it but I enjoy seeing Karim out on the pitch. I don’t agree with those who think that he’s overrated. He is an important player in this team.

“You always want to talk about negative things but there are so many positive things…I want to talk about what he does well. You just have to see the half hour that he played and how performed.”
