CAIRO_30 April 2020: Former Real Madrid Croatian striker, Davor Suker, believes that the team current striker, Karim Benzema, is one of the best in the world.

Suker, who won the 1998 World Cup golden boot, wore Real Madrid jersey between 1996 and 1999 and won the Laliga title in 1997 as well as achieving the UEFA Champions League in 1998.
During his time in Madrid, the Croatian striker scored 38 goals in 86 games.
