Newly appointed Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has insisted that striker Karim Benzema should be scoring 50 goals and not 30 goals for the club in a season.
Ancelotti described Benzema as a ‘top striker’, adding that he has done really well for the club.
The Italian disclosed this on Wednesday during an introductory press conference.
The 61-year-old returned to the Santiago Bernabeu from Everton on Tuesday.
Ancelotti said, “Benzema should be scoring 50 goals, not 30. Vini Jr. has to score more and we have to get more goals from the others too.

“These are the players I’ve got, Karim has done really well. Karim has improved a lot in this period, he has more responsibility.
“He’s a top striker. Then there are young players with a lot of potential. The aim is to score goals, not just to sign a striker who scored 30 goals.
”We have to look to get the wide players to score, and from central players too. We have to introduce an offensive system and mentality.”
