Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman was recently asked to choose the better striker between Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema.
While sitting down for an interview with ESPN (shared via YouTube), Coman was asked several multiple-choice questions. One of those questions asked him to choose between the former Bayern Munich forward and the Real Madrid forward.
Coman chose the latter, explaining (with a smile):
“Lewy left us. I’m sorry, so Benzema.”
The winger appeared to be referring to Lewandowski’s move from Bayern Munich to Barcelona this summer for an alleged transfer fee of €50m.
Karim Benzema had a blockbuster campaign for Real Madrid last season
The French striker has been in brilliant form since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. He took responsibility for scoring goals Los Blancos in the last four years and reached incredible levels in the last term.
The 34-year-old scored 44 goals and provided 15 assists in 46 games for Real Madrid as they won La Liga and the UEFA Champions League. He delivered crucial performances in the knockout rounds of the Champions League against Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris-Saint Germain (eight goals in six games).
His brilliant performances helped Los Blancos to a record-breaking 14th Champions League title despite the team finding themselves in a number of difficult situations. He is also poised to win the Ballon d’Or this year as he has both the stats and the silver to win the prestigious award.
Can Robert Lewandowski challenge Benzema’s reign in Spain?
Another striker who shone in football in the era of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is Lewandowski. The Poland international has won awards including twice (2020 and 2021) as the best men’s player at The Best FIFA Football Awards.
Last season he scored 50 goals and provided seven assists in 46 games for Bayern Munich. After eight years at the club, Lewandowski earned his long-awaited transfer to Barcelona this summer.
He will now be in direct competition with Benzema as the two elite forwards will represent them El Classico rivals from this season. It remains to be seen if the Poland international can challenge Real Madrid’s French striker for the Golden Boot and Team Cup.
