Guardiola unveils a’special’ player in Real Madrid’s squad for the Champions League

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has dubbed Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema a’special’ player.

Guardiola made the comments ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Real Madrid.

Guardiola was cited in this regard as saying, “His career speaks for itself” (through Telefoot’s Twitter feed).

“He’s been a Real Madrid player for over a decade, and when a striker stays at a club for that long, it’s because he possesses something special, a gift.”

Benzema has had an outstanding season at Real Madrid thus far this season.

The France international has 39 goals and 13 assists in 40 games with Los Blancos in all competitions.

He has helped Real Madrid go 15 points clear of second-placed Barcelona on top of the LaLiga table, with a game in hand.
