The Real Madrid forward has been consistent over the last few seasons, but has always been under the shadow of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

This time, his chances of winning the title were huge. Messi is not included in the top 25 nominations, while Ronaldo is ranked 20th.

The support for Benzema was also given by two football legends. Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo have publicly expressed their support for the French national team striker.

Missing Number 9 Who Became the Winner

Ronaldo, a living legend from Brazil, supported Benzema because he missed a player number 9 who deserved to be a winner. Incidentally, Benzema has provided the proof last season.

“Karim [Benzema] will win. He played a good season yesterday. I think he deserves this award.

"Yes, I like his style of play. I also miss a number 9 to win this award. That position is important for a team and Karim has shown that."


Zidane, a former Real Madrid coach and living legend from France, also put his support on Benzema. For Zidane, Benzema deserves it.

During his time in charge of Madrid, Zidane played Benzema in 217 matches in all competitions. As a result, the 34-year-old striker scored a total of 108 goals as a return of trust.

"If Benzema wins the Ballon d'Or, then he really deserves it.
