In the buildup to the Champions League second round tie between Lyon and Real Madrid, Karim Benzema sat down to talk about his time at Lyon, the move to Real Madrid, Zidane, the upcoming Lyon v Real Madrid game, and rising French stars.

Some highlights:

On comparisons with Ronaldo (Brazilian):

I do not know, maybe the technique. But, I think I do not have much in common with Ronaldo. For me, he is the best player of all the times. Of course his way of playing is inspiring me, we are both strikers. He serves me as inspiration.

On Mourinho:

For me Mourinho is a really great coach. He has won lots of titles and made grow lots of players. He changed my attitude on the pitch, now I am more aggressive.
