Benzema reveals he has heard nothing from Ronaldo since Ballon d'Or win

Both Benzema and Ronaldo will meet in Qatar for the 2022 World Cup this month.

Karim Benzema has revealed he has heard nothing from his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo since he clinched the 2022 Ballon d’Or.

The France international lifted the illustrious prize for the first time in his career after having an extraordinary show in the 2021/22 season for Real Madrid. His best performances helped Los Blancos to win La Liga and the Champions League.

Ronaldo endured his lowest finish in the rankings since 2005, placing 20th on the night after a difficult return season at Manchester United.

When asked by French outlet Telefoot if he had heard from his former Real teammate, Benzema admitted: “No, not yet.”

The awards ceremony took place almost a month ago and five-time winner Ronaldo was not present on the night to see Benzema lift the award.

Both have slowed down considerably in 2022/23 for various reasons, but are remembered fondly for their partnership in Madrid, alongside Gareth Bale.

Despite their struggles this season, both Benzema and Ronaldo will represent their nations at the 2022 World Cup this month.
