Casemiro: “Karim Benzema is the best No 9 in the world.”

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions League match against Inter Milan on Tuesday, Casemiro discussed France internationals Eduardo Camavinga and Karim Benzema in quotes transcribed by AS.

On Eduardo Camavinga

“He is young, he has a lot of energy, and he has desire. We can’t put too much pressure on him because he is 18 years old. Sometimes he’s in too much of a hurry, but we can count on him. The coaching staff have a lot of confidence in him. It’s his first year at Madrid.”

On being without Karim Benzema vs Inter

“You’re losing the best number nine in the world, that’s how it is. We have [Luka] Jovic and Mariano. Luka had a great game the other day. We have to congratulate him, it has been difficult for him as he has the best number nine in the world ahead of him.”

On Kylian Mbappé

“He’s a great player. He’s in the top 3 in the world.”
