Karim Benzema emerges as the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League player of the season

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how UEFA's Technical Observer panel named Real Madrid's Karim Benzema as the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League Player of the Season.

The 34-year-old was phenomenal in the course of the just-concluded season inspiring Los Blancos to a record 14th Champions League title and his fifth since moving from Lyon in 2009.

He found the back of the net 15 times in the Champions League which eventually earned him top spot in the competition scoring charts.

Ten of those goals came in the preliminary rounds of the tournament as he began with a magical late hat-trick against Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16.

Benzema then scored another hat-trick against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and then buried the extra-time winner to oust the holders in Spain.
