Karanka Pleased With Madrid’s Team Work, Praised Benzema

Real Madrid continue their winning run in La Liga by trashing Athletic Bilbao 5-1 at Santiago Bernebau on Saturday, and assistant coach Aitor Karanka was very pleased with Los Blancos continuous intensity.

Karanka admitted that things could really get difficult before the half time break when Bilbao managed to score and reduce their deficit. However, after an important team talks, Los Blancos players continue to play with similar intensity and went on to add two more goals instead.

Although pleased with the team’s performance, Karanka did give a special note for Karim Benzema’s performance, who was excellent on the day.
