WTF? MARCA’s odd front picture today has Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema posing with a genie’s lamp

Marca run a feature-length interview with Real Madrid’s French striker Karim Benzema today.

Revisiting some of his struggles at the Casa Blanca, Benz tells Marca that the whistles and cat calls he received were tough to take, and that Zidane’s support has been key in his resurgence and return to goalscoring ways.

Quoting him as saying he wants to win everything this year, i.e. the quadruple, the sports daily oddly have Benzema posing with a genie’s lamp in his hands, as if alluding to some sort of Aladdin mystique.
