LaLiga: We need to sign no. 9 – Ancelotti says Real Madrid can no longer depend on Benzema

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has lauded Rodrygo and Marco Asensio for always showing readiness to step in the shoes of aging veteran striker, Karim Benzema.

The Italian also made it clear Los Blancos are in search of a top striker to replace Benzema, insisting that the Frenchman cannot keep operating as the team’s only center-forward.

The Spanish capital city club has two pure strikers in the team, Benzema and Mariano Diaz.

But Mariano has failed to win the confidence of the veteran Italian manager and has failed to find the back of the net this season in nine games.

“I say this because Karim Benzema has an age — even though, of course, he’s doing very well. We never had any kind of problem with that,” he told reporters ahead of their game against Real Sociedad in La Liga on Tuesday.

“The project for the future for the club is to sign a 9, because Karim is the age he is.

“It’s true that Karim has had his ups and downs, but Rodrygo has progressed, Asensio has progressed.”
