It was easy to quickly forget all about other Real Madrid players not named Rodrygo after Los Blancos’ 6-0 demolition of Galatasaray during the week.
The young prodigy netted a hat-trick and naturally all the spotlight was on him.

But there were other players that deserved some praise and one of them was Karim Benzema, Zinedine Zidane’s veteran striker who bagged a brace himself.
That tally took him to 50 goals in the Champions League for the Galacticos and after the game, he was asked whether he considers himself a club legend at this point.
The humble guy he is, Benzema denied having already achieved such a status as he didn’t want to be compared to some of the greatest strikers that donned the royal white of Real Madrid.
Upon hearing his words, however, many Real fans were impressed by their star’s modest nature and they were quick to call him a legend and an underrated player.
You can see some of their reactions down in the tweets below:
You are my Legend already… Thank you for such dedication to the team even in the toughest times

Doesn’t get the respect he deserves. Absolutely a Real Madrid legend. And a world class player.
