The Real Madrid striker formed a lethal attack alongside the Manchester United star in the Spanish capital. The Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema has revealed how he had to adapt his game alongside with Cristiano Ronaldo and how he has been able to make changes since the Portuguese departure from Real Madrid.
The Manchester United superstar of course played alongside Benzema during his time at Santiago Bernabau, having left Old Trafford for Spanish giants Real Madrid back in 2009.
Cristiano Ronaldo starred the French international for nine good seasons before eventually departing from Real Madrid to Juventus in 2018.
During their time together, Ronaldo and Benzema formed the deadliest attacks in European football, with the goals heavily weighted in favour of the Portuguese star.
Since his departure from Spain, though Benzema has seen his output reach a new level; having scored times in the 2017/18 season, the 34 year old has go on to grab 110 since Ronaldo's departure and is currently on course for his prolific season yet.
The shift in dynamic can be explained by Benzema's change in position, having played on the right of a front three to assist Ronaldo in the center, before moving back centrally following the United's star departure.
The Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema added that Manchester United players need to adapt to his reality, that is when they are on the field they need to give him space and surely things will be well for them.
Benzema added that he does not view himself as the same type of player as Cristiano Ronaldo. But he said, "When Cristiano Ronaldo was at the club, I was more the one who created more goals but he is the one who finished superbly". This means that United players now need to create more scoring chances for Cristiano Ronaldo and they may be true with that.
