Benzema still full of confidence

30 September 2012 15:00

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema insists he remains as confident as ever and is happy at the progress he is making.

The France international has only started two of Real's five La Liga matches so

far, but the striker said he was working hard to push for a regular berth in

the squad.


"Is it necessary for a striker to score goals for the season to go well? I

felt very well in recent games," Benzema told AS

"I feel that I'm making progress and my legs are getting better. I'm very

happy. Admittedly, I was happy to play 90 minutes twice with France (against

Finland and Belarus).


"It is important to play several games in a row. Besides, I'm working hard

to get ready.


"I've never lost confidence. I've always been sure of myself and my game.

When you don't score, the environment tries to contaminate you, but that does

not affect me.


"I'm a striker and I love to score, but everybody knows that I (also)

enjoy it when I can give assists."
