Real Madrid, Ancelotti adamant about Benzema’s farewell
The Blancos coach admitted that he was surprised
With the match drawn, at home, with Atletico Bilbao (1-1), Benzema’s long adventure with the Real Madrid shirt officially ended. In the post-match, Ancelotti dwelt on the farewell of the fabulous French striker, who is now destined to play in wealthy Saudi Arabia (ready a pharaonic contract).
“We cannot be happy with his decision, but we have to respect him. I can only thank him for what he has done at this club…. Surprised by his decision? Yes, he was surprised. But you have to understand him. Your decision is part of the personal process,” Ancelotti’s own words reported by Marca.
