Capello: Benzema better for Ronaldo departure

Former Real Madrid coach, Fabio Capello, has heaped praise on Karim Benzema after his season success.

Capello says Benzema has grown since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure for Juventus.

He told Marca: “[He’s been] sensational. He’s become a benchmark for Madrid and he’s undoubtedly the best. He has taken on a responsibility that he didn’t have when he played with Cristiano Ronaldo, he has a nose for goal and he’s shown it. He scored decisive goals and I think it’s the best season since he signed.”

Capello also had praise for Thibaut Courtois: “I’m very happy for him. He’s always been a great goalkeeper but he had me a little confused last season, he lacked consistency. This year he’s made a lot of big saves and, after a long time, Madrid have another Zamora.”
