Frustrated Real Madrid striker Benzema says he'll continue to work.


Los Blancos striker Karim Benzema revealed he is "fed up" of being substituted by boss Rafael Benitez.

The France international, who has scored six in six league games for Madrid, expressed his frustration at not getting enough game time.

He told AS: “Substitutions are what the coach decides, I’m just there to help my team-mates.

“It’s true I’m fed up of being taken off. I’m calm and will continue to work so I’m not always substituted. He took me off to get a result, for defensive reasons.

“It’s true that the electronic board always shows the No.9. Ask Benitez why that is.”
