Moggi: I Don’t Like Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema & Juventus Must Not Buy Him

Posted on 15/10/2010


Luciano Moggi has told Juventus not to sign Karim Benzema from Real Madrid.

Juventus have been told not to sign Real Madrid strikerKarim Benzema by former transfer chief Luciano Moggi.

The Frenchman has been tipped to join Juventus in January as Jose Mourinho sees him as peripheral to plans.

But Moggi has given Benzema the red card.

Writing for his column, Moggi said: “I don’t really know if Juventus are pursuing Benzema, but I must say the idea does not enthuse me.

“[Jose] Mourinho knows about football, and if he decides to get rid of a player signed little over a year ago then I would have to ask why and what motivates such a choice.

“I don’t like the Frenchman. He is an incomplete talent because of those who have coached him. He doesn’t make sacrifices, and it’s difficult to use him tactically.

“He has physical and technical powers, but this is not enough to make up for other missing qualities. I would leave him where he is.”
