REAL MADRID 5-0 ATHLETIC
Cristiano Ronaldo: "Benzema is the best striker in La Liga"
After Benzema’s double for Madrid last night, Cristiano commented: "I’m happy for him. He’s the best forward in La Liga and one of the best in the world".
A perfect match: "We’re getting better as pointed out by the coach in the post-match press conference. We need to keep improving in certain areas on the pitch but still growing. We still have areas to work on. This was a great team performance, scoring five and keeping a clean-sheet. We’re all very happy".
Benzema: "I’m delighted for him. He’s the best forward in La Liga and one of the best in the world. The criticisms he receives are part of being a professional footballer and we need to rise above them".
The BBC: "It’s working; we’re used now to playing together and are very happy".
