Jose Mourinho has claimed Karim Benzema did not win the Ballon d’Or award all these years because he was “obsessed with his team”.



The Real Madrid captain was announced as the winner of this year’s prize at 34 years old.

Benzema led Los Blancos to LaLiga and the Champions League glory.

Benzema was managed by Mourinho during his three years at the Santiago Bernabeu, when Cristiano Ronaldo was the team’s main man.

It was only after Ronaldo left that Benzema assumed the mantle of being Madrid’s leading light.

“Karim is a great character, a great personality, and a team guy.

“He is not obsessed with himself, he is not obsessed with the Ballon d’Or, he is not a guy obsessed with scoring more goals than A, B or C.

“He is just a team guy who does a lot in a way that the Ballon d’Or becomes a natural consequence. I think he is a guy obsessed with his team,” Mourinho said in a recorded tribute.
