Real Madrid vs Real Valladolid Full Highlights
While talking about their below-par run this season, Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema said, “We lost a very important match against Ajax and it seems that we have never won anything.” The forward then added, “Do not forget that we have won a lot these years. That is very difficult and very important.”
He said, “I hope Solari is here until the end of the season but that is a club issue and I don’t want to discuss it,” and further added, “We’re with Solari. If a squad wasn’t with their coach, then they wouldn’t have played a game like we did today.” The French forward added, “Why change now? We have 11 games left and we hope he will stay with us.”

Benzema also responded when asked about Real Madrid’s connection with Mourinho as he said, “I cannot answer you, I have a coach now and it’s a club issue.” He added, “Being eliminated from the Copa [del Rey], the Champions League and with LaLiga almost impossible, it’s difficult,” and further said, “Football is like that. We have to continue and wait to win the 11 games we have left and enjoy football, which is the most important thing.”
The Real Madrid forward said, “We always have to win, we have a great team and people have to be more with us because, in football, there is a lot of change.” He then further added, “I do not mean only the fans, the journalists too. When I talk about people, I talk about everyone.”
