Cristiano Ronaldo was in love with Karim Benzema - Jose Mourinho

The Portuguese manager believes France now have an 'amazing' attacking force after welcoming back Benzema from his six-year international exile and is backing the Madrid star to bring the best out of Kylian Mbappe, similarly to how Kane did with Son Heung-Min during his tenure at Tottenham.

The Portuguese coach believes Ronaldo was in love with Benzema.

“I speak to Real Madrid all the time. We are close friends, the President, the CEO, we speak all the time. I’m really proud of it. Everytime they’re successful, I’m so so happy," he stated.

“The best compliment you can give Benzema is that Cristiano was in love with him, for Cristiano to be in love with another attacker it means you do a lot for him. Karim does that for every attacker that plays around him. He's not selfish, he is a team man.''

“Benzema's vision is amazing, he enjoys football by playing freely. I can compare him to Kane, Harry has a better scoring instinct than Benzema but Karim is an amazing player, when you see that Mbappe and Griezmann are with him I think that would be amazing.”

“Benzema is a great professional, he's getting older but he keeps on producing and looks like he's young, he rarely gets injured, and he can get the best out of Mbappe, just like he did with Cristiano. I think Benzema can do a great job with France.”
