Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has won the 2022 UEFA Player of the Year award after his phenomenal 2021-2022 season where he conquered the Champions League title alongside his teammates.

The 34-year-old is the hot favourite to win the Ballon d’Or award later this year. Benzema played a key role as Madrid won LaLiga title this year, finishing 13 points ahead of Barcelona.

He has scored 35 times in 37 games as Carlo Ancelotti’s men lifted four trophies already in 2022. Benzema topped the scoring charts last season in the Champions League with 15 goals.

Benzema was one of three shortlisted nominees, with Santiago Bernabeu teammate Thibaut Courtois also up for the gong as well as Manchester City superstar Kevin de Bruyne.

The Frenchman was a worthy winner of the award for multiple reasons, including his stunning 15-goal haul across last term’s Champions League campaign.
