Real Madrid star Karim Benzema has enjoyed one of his best seasons so far when Los Blancos regained the La Liga title from rival Barcelona. Real Madrid’s attention now will turn to the Champions League match against Manchester City on Friday night, where the Spanish representative needs to come back to the Etihad after losing 1-2 at the Bernabeu.
Benzema has scored 26 goals this season and also contributed 11 assists but recently he discussed with his friends about the plan after leaving football. In a conversation on YouTube with his kickboxing friend Fouad Ezbiri, the French striker confessed that he wanted to participate in other sports.
Benzema says: “I feel nervous about combat sports, and I like to practice. When my football career is over, why didn’t I train with you for six months? And, if you think that I was ready for a martial arts match, I think there was no problem. I swear to God, I want to fight. “. However, the fact that Benzema plays martial arts does not happen in the near future, because he is only 30 years old and with what is shown, he can still play the peak of football for at least another season.
Benzema’s boxing idol is former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, who is about to return to the ring. The Real Madrid star commented: “That’s his strength. I always admire his presence, determination and attitude. His return is unexpected.”.
