Karim Benzema, a forward player for Real Madrid, claimed he wants more after winning his first Pichichi Trophy for leading scorer in the 2021–2022 La Liga season.
The La Liga Santander Pichichi Trophy was chosen by the 34-year-old right out of training at the presentation ceremony, which took place at the Goya Theatre.
He also received the Hyundai Supporters’ MVP Trophy and the Di Stefano Trophy for being the best player throughout the 2021–2022 season.
The Frenchman expressed his pride in his achievements and acknowledged that this year will be challenging, but he will constantly strive for more.
“I feel very proud of my work.
“I think this year is going to be a difficult year. I always want to do more.
“I’m going to try and do more, that includes winning LaLiga, scoring a lot of goals and most importantly, enjoying myself on the pitch.
“It’s a very important trophy for me, thanks to my teammates.
“Without them I wouldn’t be here today. Thanks to the fans, the club and the president.
“Every year is different, every year our rivals want to win LaLiga and let’s see what happens this year.
“But we are strong and let’s see what happens,” Benzema stated.
Last month, Benzema acknowledged that Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from Real Madrid had provided him the opportunity to advance his game.
He claimed that Ronaldo’s departure provided him with the chance to advance and score goals.
“With him I had another role and when he left, I knew I could take a step forward in scoring goals, but still playing football.
“What has changed since then is my goal tally, but I’m still playing the way I think you have to play this game. The figures mean I’m not far behind the Real Madrid legends, and that gives me confidence, even though I know that reaching Cristiano’s goal [figures] is impossible.”
