Benzema will be ready and ‘100%’ against Liverpool, assures Ancelotti
Karim Benzema, absent this weekend, will be “100%” against Liverpool on Wednesday in C1, assured Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.
“I can feel it. Tomorrow (Wednesday, editor’s note), it will be at 100%. He came back for collective training on Sunday, and he had done some good work sessions before. He is thoroughly, over-motivated. For Karim, for the club, it’s a very important competition“, underlined Tuesday in a press conference Ancelotti, on the eve of the 8th final return against the “Reds“.
The Italian technician preferred to brush aside the question of the relationship of his center forward with the coach of the Blues, Didier Deschamps, after a new tension around the conditions of the departure of Benzema from Qatar just before the World Cup at the end of 2022.It’s a personal question. I respect them both a lot, Didier Deschamps also played for me. But it’s a topic that Karim doesn’t talk about at all, so I don’t think it affects him at all.“slipped Ancelotti.
