Real Madrid's Karim Benzema: I lost respect for Mourinho after cat jibe

29-year-old Benzema has scored 183 goals for Real Madrid in 377 games, and his near-one goal in two record is something many players can only dream of.

Benzema has struggled for form at club level this term, scoring just once in nine La Liga and Champions League appearances.

"Ronaldo is more selfish than me, but that's normal", he added.

"Ferguson said that he wanted to sign Benzema and that I could only sign for Manchester United if he did not, which is what happened", Owen told press on Monday.

One of the more unfortunate parts of the season for the French forward has been the criticism he has received from his own supporters.

"It's hard, especially in Spain, where sometimes you don't understand it", he admitted.

"They are normally there to boost you".

The Frenchman has racked up nearly 200 goals across all competitions for Los Blancos, adding 2 La Liga crowns, 2 Copa Del Reys, 3 Champions Leagues, 3 UEFA Super Cups and a pair of FIFA Club World Cups to his trophy cabinet in the process.

"It's complicated, I'm not stupid but I want to win something with my country", he confirmed.

"I'm shy but if you make fun of me, I'll be direct".

"The pressure to succeed with your country is something else, I hope my situation can change". It's been two years that I've not been playing [for France].

He had a choice to join either United or Madrid and opted to move to Spain in a £25million switch in 2009, clearing the path for Owen to move from Newcastle to sign a deal with the Red Devils. I don't have any problem with the coach, but as long as he's here, I don't think I'll have a chance.

"It felt that he though they were amusing and the truth is that if he was someone that I respected, then in that moment I lost my cool".
