Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has turned '10' at the club and gave an interview to RMC Sport about the BBC strikeforce of him, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
"In the BBC we had a rocket, Bale, a scorer, Cristiano, and then there was me, the space between the two, I was the piece that made it all work," said the French forward.
"In Lyon I was the finisher and here the finisher was Ronaldo, with him I played another role. I scored goals but I was more involved in construction, movement and trying to open spaces."
Benzema often played in a secondary role to Ronaldo, moving wider and giving the Portuguese forward room to strut his stuff.
