Champions League: Guardiola singles out one Real Madrid player ahead of semi-final
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has hailed Real Madrid captain, Karim Benzema as an exceptional talent.
Benzema scored four goals against Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-final and they will now face City in the last four.
“Benzema is exceptional, not only for what he does now, but also for what he has been doing for more than 10 years at Real Madrid.
“He is not only a goalscorer, but also a fantastic and versatile player.
“His career is phenomenal,” Guardiola said.
Guardiola is desperate to win the trophy with City after losing last year’s final to Chelsea.
However, the Spaniard would need to get pass an in-form Benzema and Madrid who have won it 13 times already.
