Karim Benzema welcomes ‘best in the world’ player to Saudi Arabia

Former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has welcomed N’Golo Kante to Saudi Arabia, as they’d be teammate when the Saudi league resumes next season.

Benzema made a move to the Saudi league following an attractive offer from the oil-rich nation, which made him to opt against signing a contract extension with Real Madrid.

According to Benzema, Kante is the best box to box player in the world.

He said: “Hi N’Golo, one time I told you you’re the best player box-to-box in the world, now I’m happy to play with you again.

“And of course, in the best team in Saudi! See in Jedda!”

Kante replied in the same video saying: “Thank you, Karim. Thank you for your message. You’re the best player in the world.

“I’m very pleased to play with you.”
