On Monday, Real Madrid superstar Eden Hazard showered praise on teammate Karim Benzema, before proceeding to call him "the best striker in the world".

Having shared a dressing room with Benzema for four months, the former Chelsea star is convinced the 31-year-old French star is now the world's most in-form striker. "Having played with him for the last three or four months I think that he is the world's greatest striker".

The Belgian global shared his insights on the 32-year-old forward while speaking in the press conference ahead of his country's UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier match against Cyprus on Tuesday.

Benzema has been impressive for Real Madrid so far this season.


"Benzema hasn't played global football since 2015 in the aftermath of the so-called "Valbuena case"."I feel for him", Hazard said about the situation. He makes his teammates better, it's not that he is just a striker", said Hazard.

"For the last month I've been in good condition with no injuries", he said. When I'm on the pitch I will always try to do my best, with Real Madrid or Belgium.

"I'm sorry for him but it's always easier to face a team without Karim Benzema", added the winger.
