Benzema vs Giroud: who is the better striker

Karim Benzema is among the trends for his comments about fellow French striker Olivier Giroud.

In a question and answer session on Instagram when comparing Benzema to Giroud, the Real Madrid man said,  “You can’t confuse an F1 car with a go-kart and I’m being kind.”

“I know I’m a Formula 1 car. It works because he’s there, that’s it. It’s not going to be spectacular.

“[Antoine] Griezmann and [Kylian] Mbappe get seen more while he rolls his sleeves up and does the dirty work. But does everyone like his game? I don’t know.”
