‘I need help’: Karim Benzema breaks silence on his poor form since joining Cristiano Ronaldo in Saudi Pro League

Karim Benzema has recently discussed the difficulties he’s faced since joining Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League.

A prominent transfer alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema has found it challenging to settle into his new team compared to Ronaldo’s seamless transition.


Off-field issues have compounded his struggles, including reported tensions with former coach Nuno Espirito Santo, leading to Santo’s departure due to poor results.

Speculation about Benzema’s dissatisfaction in Jeddah and a potential return to Europe has also circulated.

On the pitch, his performance hasn’t mirrored his success at Real Madrid, notably in his final seasons where he played a crucial role in their Champions League triumph.

Recent penalty misses and other setbacks led to him being replaced as the team’s penalty taker by Abderrazak Hamdallah, who also faced difficulties from the spot in a recent match against Al Taawoun, resulting in a goalless draw.

Benzema explains his poor form in Saudi

After the match, Benzema was questioned about his dip in form, shedding light on the challenges he’s faced since his move to Al-Ittihad.

“Yes, because it is not the same game, it’s not the same players. I need help. I need someone to help me on the pitch. I can’t win one game alone. I need other players and a lot of things!,” he said as quoted by Sports Brief (via The Nassr Zone).

“But it’s different. It’s my first season in Saudi [Arabia]. I hope to finish well this season. I hope to win.”
