Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has hailed Real Madrid captain, Karim Benzema, as the best number 9 on earth.
He was speaking on BT Sport, after Benzema’s hat-trick saw the LaLiga giants defeatChelsea 3-1 in the Champions League quarter-final first leg.
Ferdinand contrasted Benzema with top caround Europe like Tottenham Hotspurs’ Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich.
“He (Benzema) is the best number 9 on the planet for me.
“We can talk about Lewandowski, great player. Harry Kane has come back into that form we all knew about, great player.
“This guy (Benzema) at the moment is another level. He is phenomenal, he is impacting the game in so many different areas, not just goals, assists, link up play and slowing the game down,” Ferdinand said.
Benzema, 34, has gotten 42 goals in his last 42 games. He turns into the fourth player ever to score consecutive full hat-trick in the Champions and his count of 11 goals in a one season is the most elevated by any French player in the competition.
