I just have to make one final note.
This is NOT about the quality of Ligue 1. I respect Ligue 1 a lot and I agree that when many players come out of Ligue 1, they are already fully-formed. Essien for example was already a monster, but he didn't hit worldwide fame until he got to Chelsea.
So this is NOT Benzema's performance in Ligue 1 (which was obviously outstanding), it is purely about him going to Madrid and sucking, at this point, I have serious questions about his future, it's never a good idea to get on Mourinho's bad side.
But I mean, I wanted Benzema to come to Arsenal, hoped he would fly under the radar.
So from my POV, I do not really see Ligue 1 as an inferior league, if you succeed in L1, you'll most likely succeed elsewhere.
