Another day, another expensive galactico paraded in Madrid…

Karim Benezma didn’t quite match the 80,000 screaming fans who came to see C-Ron, but he still drew almost 20,000 to the Bernabeu, which isn’t bad for a player who is not an A-List baller – not yet anyway. No doubt Madrid fans love him already for choosing Real over Barcelona and Man Utd.
Benzema has no shirt number yet. He’ll have to wait for one of his team-mates to leave the club. The smart money says he’ll inherit Klaas-Jan Huntelaar’s No.19 shirt.
Useless trivia: Benzema’s unveiling happened exactly eight years after another shaven-headed Frenchman was shown off at the Bernabeu. Remember Zinedine Zidane anyone?
