Ballon d’or: Benzema’s big fear

Mentioned insistently among the main favorites in the race for the Golden Ball, Karim Benzema does not want to make the trophy a goal.

The votes are now closed. The journalists invited to designate the next Golden Ball had in fact until Sunday to designate the successor of Lionel Messi, last winner in 2019. And if Robert Lewandowski, the best artificer in 2020 as in 2021, and Lionel Messi, already crowned six times and finally titled with Argentina this year, appear as the two main contenders, Karim Benzema is also among the favorites.

the Real Madrid has not hesitated, in recent weeks, to campaign in favor of his star striker, many former Madrid glories rising to the niche to call for the coronation of the former Lyonnais. A situation which obviously does not leave the interested party indifferent. “It’s already good to be in the 30s. And it’s a dream that I have since I was very little, as I had many. Like playing for Real or winning a European Cup ”, he confided in an interview with beIN Sports.

You leave a lot of energy

The Frenchman nevertheless takes care not to make the Golden Ball a real goal. The reason ? The fear of losing sight of the essential. “It’s not a question of objective, because if you start to think like that you leave a lot of energy and that is not the most important, he continued. The most important thing is to get something on a football field, through technical gestures, good passes, controls. Make the show. Me, I like the beautiful game. “

Equal to himself, Karim Benzema also refuses to see in the Golden Ball a only individual reward. “It’s an individual trophy but it’s also collective. If one day you manage to win it, it’s because all your teammates allowed you to do it. Whether it is those of the club or the selection “, he added.
