Papin believes that Benzema is a unique figure in modern era. He says:

“Karim Benzema is the best of his generation by far, he's very complete.I like his finishing, his way of participating in the actions of his team, in their creation. He is not only there to score goals, he is there to bring the offensive animation of his training to life. 

"His longevity at Real Madrid is incredible. In such a club, where it is not easy to stay or settle down, he arrived, he imposed himself when he was in competition with very great players."

He also notes the fact that Benzema is not the same person who played alongside

Cristiano Ronaldo

and he has absolutely improved his abilities.

"He evolved his style by putting himself at the service of Cristiano Ronaldo, It may seem simple, but he had the merit of curbing his pure goalscoring ambitions to create harmony with such a star, over time."
