How did Benzema benefit from Ronaldo's departure from the Royal Club?

French player Karim Benzema, Real Madrid's striker, spoke about the extent of his benefit from the departure of Portuguese legend "Cristiano Ronaldo" from the "Royal" team about 5 years ago.


Ronaldo left Real Madrid in the summer of 2018 and moved to Juventus, in a deal worth 100 million euros.


Since Ronaldo left the Santiago Bernabeu, Karim Benzema has exploded and developed season after season, becoming one of Real Madrid's most important players during that period at all. In statements highlighted by the Spanish newspaper “AS”, by asking him about his impact on Ronaldo’s departure, Benzema said: “When Cristiano was with us, my league was different from what it is now.”


He added: “He helped me a lot and gave me support, I was adapting to having a teammate who scored 50 goals per season, and when he left I had to take a step forward. Since his departure I have changed a lot and my numbers have changed with me, despite the fact that the way I play is the same since I was a kid.”


Regarding the date of his retirement, Karim Benzema said: “When I feel that I do not enjoy playing football, I will stop immediately.”
