Karim Benzema rules out imminent Lyon return and wants to ‘keep making history’ at Real Madrid
Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has ruled out a return to former club Lyon within the near future and insists he wants to ‘keep making history’ with Los Blancos.

Benzema moved from Lyon to Madrid within the summer of 2009 and has won 17 trophies for Real, including four Champions League crowns.

Earlier in his career, he claimed four Ligue 1 titles with Lyon and he told the club’s official website: “I am the player i’m today because of Lyon.”




Asked a few possible link-up with Lyon in future, he said: “With regards to returning, 

for the instant no. i would like to stay making history at Real Madrid, which is that the best team within the world.

“After that, you never know. If I could end my career at Lyon? Why not?”

Lyon’s current sporting director, Juninho Pernambucano, has made no secret of his desire to bring back Benzema at some point 

and therefore the striker said: “I wont to love twiddling with Juninho, also with [Sylvain] Wiltord.”
