Karim Benzema is a French football player, a striker for Real Madrid and the French national team. Karim made his name at the Lyon football club, with which he won four league titles and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. After a great 2008/09 season, in which Benzema hit the opponents’ goal 17 times, an offer from Real Madrid for 35 million euros followed. As a result, Lyon, which is in a difficult financial situation, was forced to sell its leader.
Karim’s first trophy at Real Madrid was the 2011 Spanish Cup, and in 2014 the Frenchman raised the Champions League trophy over his head for the first time. Together with the club, Benzema won 18 trophies, including four Champions League cups. He was named “Footballer of the Year in France” three times in 2011, 2012 and 2014
