After two years together, the team said goodbye to the sacked Ancelotti at the end of May 2015 with a heavy heart. “Carletto” is a demanding coach, but also keen on harmony with the stars. Therefore, Benzema was not the only one who was satisfied when Real sent the message to get the Italian back.

“Which club would not undoubtedly sign Mbappé?”
BENZEMA also spoke about …
… a possible move from Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé to Madrid: “Kylian is a young player with an immense quality. And he’s a good boy. He would be welcome at Real Madrid, of course. But which club would not undoubtedly sign him? He currently has a contract with PSG and we’ll see how he makes up his mind. “
… the past season: “We fought for the championship until the last day of the match and were very close to winning it. We made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League and were beaten there by Chelsea, who would later become the champions. We had 60 failures and therefore never had the entire team together. So it was difficult. If the club now feels that reinforcements are needed, they can act accordingly. The goal is to improve each year to win titles. We have to do that. “
“Players leave, but Real Madrid remains Real Madrid”
… what Real Madrid means to him: “I always say that for me Madrid is the best club in the world. Players can come and go, but Real Madrid will always be Real Madrid – the best club in the world. He will be at the highest level. I know that I have to do more every year. Hopefully we will win more titles with this team. I will always be grateful to Real Madrid because they approached me when I was practically a kid at 21. Now I have a lot of experience, I’ve won a lot of titles. It is a pleasure for me to be with this club every day. Every championship and every Champions League that I win is like a dream come true. “
… Sergio Ramos, who was not nominated for the European Championship in Spain: “Sergio is a friend, our captain and I thought it was a shame for him when I found out about it.”
“Feel like the happiest person in the world”
