His year 2021 with Real Madrid already placed him as a benchmark player, his masterclass in the League of Nations, which allows him to win an international trophy as a bonus, has clearly shone the spotlight on Karim Benzema. The French striker of Real, a few weeks before the presentation of the Ballon d’Or, now seems to be among the big favorites, like Lionel Messi.
Pochettino doesn’t even see Benzema on the podium

Mauricio Pochettino, in the interview with Cadena Cope and Radio Marca, obviously pushed for Lionel Messi to grab the trophy at the end of the season. But even on the podium, KB9 is not considered …
