Benzema: My best has yet to come

Real Madrid attacker Karim Benzema has stressed that he is not at his best just yet in the wake of his fine performance in the 5-1 Liga win over Athletic Bilbao at the weekend.

The France international netted once and got two assists as he helped Los Blancos to three points in his first match after a brief spell on the sidelines due to injury.

But Benzema was quick to insist that he can still do better.

“I cannot say that this was my best match for Real Madrid, because I have been more decisive in the past,” Benzema told AS.

“The most important thing is that I felt well on the pitch after 15 days on the sidelines. My best has yet to come.”

The attacker then went on to voice his delight with Madrid’s performance as he feels they were much like the team that won La Liga last term.

“What’s important is that the great Real Madrid of last season is back again. We did some wonderful things.”

Real Madrid currently sit third in the league table, trailing leaders Barcelona by eight points.
