“In Lyon I played in another way. Now I’m free on the pitch, I like to touch the ball,” Karim Benzema said in 2020 speaking on Movistar.
“With Cristiano I changed my style, I played for him. I had someone who did double or triple my goals and I had to adapt.
“I thought it wouldn’t cost me anything, I just had to change my way of playing and pass it on to him more. I put my goal scoring aside.”
Ronaldo and Benzema spent together 9 years at Real Madrid before the Portuguese moved to Juventus in 2018.
Cristiano scored 450 goals in 438 appearances for Los Blancos in all competitions with Karim assisting 47 of them
