Valverde explains the ‘unique qualities’ of all Real Madrid midfielders
At the forefront of Real Madrid’s flawless start to the season has been Federico Valverde, who is unanimously recognised as the club’s most in-form player so far.
However, his incredible influence stems beyond the Santiago Bernabeu, as he won the La Liga Player of the Month for the month of September. The Uruguayan international has reflected on his excellent performances up until this point of the campaign.
“I think I feel good in every way, both emotionally and physically. I’m working hard so that everything goes well together with my teammates”, he said, as quoted by MARCA.
With Carlo Ancelotti setting the 24-year-old a target of reaching ten goals this term, he is already halfway there with four in the league and the Champions League.
Touching on his impressive run in front of goals, Valverde commented, “I always work to be physically fit, although goals are very rare for me. In the goal against Mallorca, my great power and my good shot in the same play. Luckily the ball went in and the whole team celebrated.”
The versatile operator, who operates with some of the best midfielders in the world, gave them their props for the special qualities they bring on the pitch.
“Each one of the Madrid players who is in the centre of the field has unique qualities. Toni Kroos can provide calm with the ball, Luka gives us that magic, I energy and speed, and Tchouameni is pure defence.”
Named as Mahou’s Five Star Player for the month of September, the Champions League winner was grateful to the Madridistas for their votes towards his win.
“I am very grateful that they have voted and it is a real pleasure to receive this award from them. Hopefully we can continue winning together.”

U-turn? Benzema hints at Real Madrid stay during ceremony: “Reality is not the internet”
There has been a lot of talk around Karim Benzema’s situation over the course of the last week or so, with reports claiming that the Frenchman was on his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu.
With his contract expiring at the end of the season, it was reported that Benzema was joining Al Ittihad as part of an incredible deal worth nearly €200 million. The striker was also offered 100% of his image rights and advertising deals by the Saudi government.
Over the last day or so, it has been reported that the move is all but official at the moment, as Benzema has accepted the offer, and will soon inform Real Madrid about it.
Benzema was awarded the MARCA Leyenda awards for contribution to sports today, and speaking during it, he dropped a rather cryptic message about his future – one that says quite the opposite to what has been in the news recently.
“Speak to the fans? Speak about what? Why should I speak of the future if I’m in Madrid?”, Benzema said.
“It’s the internet speaking, and reality is not the internet,” he added.
This certainly falls away from the departure line for Benzema, who was reportedly already contemplating his life away from Madrid.
At first, though, he was hesitant about speaking about his future, saying, “Staying or leaving Real Madrid? At the moment, I’m here…we have a game on Saturday.”
He repeatedly talked about the fans, calling them the best in world football. He also said, “I know how much Real Madrid fans love me. I feel that when I’m on the pitch, I give my best for them, always.”
“I always say that we play with 11 on the pitch but also with a crucial factor, Real Madrid fans,” Benzema concluded.
