Ballon d’Or 2022: Mourinho reveals why it took long before Benzema finally won award

Roma manager, Jose Mourinho has claimed Karim Benzema did not win the Ballon d’Or award all these years, because he is “obsessed with his team”.

The Real Madrid captain was announced the winner of this year’s prize at 34 years.

Benzema led Los Blancos to LaLiga and the Champions League glory.

Mourinho managed Benzema during his three years at the Santiago Bernabeu, when Cristiano Ronaldo was the team’s main man.

It was only after Ronaldo left that Benzema assumed the mantle of being Madrid’s leading light.

“Karim is a great character, great personality, and a team guy.

“He is not obsessed with himself, he is not obsessed with the Ballon d’Or, he is not a guy obsessed with scoring more goals than A, B or C.

“He is just a team guy who does a lot in a way that the Ballon d’Or becomes a natural consequence. I think he is a guy obsessed with his team,” Mourinho said in a recorded tribute.
