Christian Benteke and his journey to Manchester United
These Belgium wonder striker has a long way to go. He started his career with some of the less known clubs of Belgium to get the attention of Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert and joins the club in August 2012. This was his first golden chance to join English Premier League. The tag “unplayable” was given to him by then Villa manager after a swift 2–0 win against Swansea City. His quality of dribbling and skill make his place in English football more strong and futuristic. Who can forget the 2 impressive goals for a 3-1 win against Liverpool? According to Paul Lambert about that incredible win
‘Benteke has been unbelievable’
And the praise did not end there
‘you run out of things to say about the guy, how well he’s performing and how young he is’
After that, Tottenham Hotspur manager André Villas-Boas was in desperate attempt in signing Benteke, as he found him as the season’s “surprise package”.
2013 was not that wonderful for Benteke as he suffered from hip flexor injury that not only kept him away from football ground for six weeks, but this also affected his form, for a long time and due to this he got left out from Fifa World cup 2014.
