In the summer of 2007 Benzoukane signed a four-year contract with Levski Sofia in the A PFG. The transfer fee was 500 000 euros. Benzoukane had many injuries during his playing days for Levski.

On 17 May 2010, Benzoukane renewed his contract until 30 June 2012. In January 2011 his contract was mutually terminated.

International

In 2005, he got to the semi-finals in the FIFA U-20 World Cup with Morocco U20.

In September 2009, he received his first call-up to the senior team of his country. On 10 October 2009, Benzoukane made his debut for Morocco, playing the full 90 minutes and earning himself a booking in the 1:3 away loss to Gabon in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification match. On 10 August 2010, he was once again called up to the national team of Morocco for the debut of the new manager Eric Gerets.
