Benzema about current situation in club

The French forward was not expected the participation of the Mali midfield player in the encounter of Champions. Thus he affirmed in a granted interview the daily AS. Whatsoever, he made clear that the fault of the happened thing in Gerland is unique and exclusively of the players.

It did not surprise the level to him of the Lyons: “I do not believe that the Olympique made its better party. We knew that they were physically going to be very strong and that well they would be placed. They raised to its level the one of Liga de Campeones”.

Its return to Gerland: “In fact, it did not know how they were going to me to receive nor how was going to me to feel. And finally I felt like proud by the applause and a little strange to be across”.

The ownership of Mahamadou Diarrá: “It was a small surprise because Lass has more custom to play. But we are a group and the trainer chooses”.

He defends to Manuel Pellegrini: “I do not believe that the fault is of Pellegrini. In the field it left very little than we had spoken. He made an equipment on the basis of how the Lyons plays. The tactical one was suitable according to the rival, and it is not possible either to be said that it lacked nobody important one on the game land. The fault was of the players”.

They already think about the return match: “We will overcome if we did not fit goals. I have much faith in the desire that east equipment has to follow ahead in the Champions. And also we can gain Liga”.

Too much people arrive: “We did not play with a system in which the bands are used much. If to that it is united that many of those of above we have the same characteristics, the result is that sometimes we cut the way”.

Its relation with Pellegrini: “When I have something to say to him, I say it. And he. But already it is. I know what I must do, to mark goals, and I do not need that they say it every day to me. I am not of that type of players that needs to speak much with the technician”.

It hallucinates with the soccer of Guti: “He is a super pin, but already it was abreast of him. Even so, when I began to train me in Madrid I saw that it was much more than it believed”.

A dream at individual level: “To gain the east Gold Ball year it continues being my objective. But to gain happens it to be able the Champions and soon to do great a World-wide one”.

Lyon 1:0 Real M.

It follows the nightmare against the Olympique de Lyons, equipment that removes the colors time and time again to the white set and it portrays to him in his worse European face. They are already three defeats in row in Gerland. And without writing down a miserable goal.

First it was the factor surprise, because to the Olympique de Lyons – they said did not know nor God him per 2005 there, when the targets took the first fat wood of a field that never had visited before in European competition. Gerland was a so pomposo name that it sounded to mark of champagne than to soccer stage more.

Real Madrid lost by 3-0 and that one day 13 of September, but the dawn of the season was those and would be time to be able to recover. It was not possible to be won to him to the Lyons in the revenge, in Bernabéu (1-1), but when being individual shocks of phase of groups, the targets could leave ahead solving the parties before the other rivals of the zone.

To the following campaign, the 2006/2007, Gerland no longer were synonymous of ethylic bubbles for Real Madrid. The Lyons was a year greater – and better, and just in case they authenticated the goals of the Brazilian Fred and luso Tiago – yes, the one that now plays in the Athletic one. Nightmare, the Return, was called the film. And there would be a next sequel.

It would be necessary to hope, that yes, about three years to return to see the face him the Gallic demon. Neither factor surprise, nor goals spoken in Portuguese nor bagpipes. Here there were no excuses. The Lyons no longer was French champion – it is more, the quarter in the table of Ligue 1 arrived at this appointment of 2010, and Madrid signed with Galactic seal its new passport to Gerland. In the year of the end of the Bernabéu – they said, the Lyons cannot more be than a step station course to the glory.

Perhaps to feel despised, or simply to want to be believed it to extramotivate itself, the Lyons has returned to give the best thing of himself… at least was expected of them. They were not three, nor two goals, but it was enough the Rep it of Jean Makoun to sink in the desperation to the madridismo with the third victory in row of the Gauls, in house, before this rival. And without fitting a single goal in the three encounter.

And it is not complete desperation… because still it is the revenge. But it happens what happens in the Bernabéu, the Lyons will end up once again leaving the Champions fulfilling his favorite paper: the one of the Black Beast that torments to Real Madrid. It never fails.
