Do you know Benteke?
Christian Benteke is the most accurate villain in Villa Park. With 4 goals in 4 matches is the “Top Scorer” (top scorer) of the Premier and with 22 years is the undisputed leader of Aston Villa. With only one year in Birgmingham he has become the idol of the fans. Wanted by all the greats of Europe, Benteke has renewed for Aston Villa. In England, Newspapers like the sensationalist "The Sun" already call him the "Baby Drogba".
Aston Villa is one of the most successful teams in the Premier League. Founded in 1874, this historic club was a founding member of the Football League in 1888 and the Premier League in 1992. 7 leagues and 7 FA Cups adorn their windows, but without a doubt the greatest success for the villains is the European Cup raised in 1982 by beating Bayern Munich by the minimum. That same summer he won the European Super Cup.. Since then, they are already 31 years without earning anything. This course, the team started very well beating Arsenal but it has deflated with 3 losing streak. The one who hasn't slowed down is his star, Benteke, author of a brace against the gunners, he is being the most decisive player, He is the great hope of the fans and at Villa Park they hope that the Belgian's contribution can straighten the course of this history of British football.
Christian Benteke was born 22 years in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. With only 3 years his family had to emigrate to Europe fleeing Mobutu's dictatorship, when the country was called Zaire. His father, Jean Pierre, he had to make many sacrifices to give Christian a decent life. Benteke still has family in the Congo whom he helps by sending them money. You want to return to your country when the situation improves, albeit tensely calm, the country has not yet recovered from so many years of war. They settled in Belgium in 1993, there he grew up and developed as a footballer, as a professional in Liège or Genk before traveling to England. With an excellent first year, with 19 goals set a record in club history, no player had scored more than 17 goals with the villains in the same season.
With 1'91 of muscle, Benteke is a striker like Drogba or the mythical Hasselbaink. Corpulent, smart and not without technical quality, Christian is a goal scoring machine, at Aston Villa 23 in 38 matches. It is a fixed with Belgium, one of the fashion picks. His goals in the Premier and in the World Cup in Brazil could be the springboard that will take him to a great European.
During this summer many European teams have asked about him. It sounded loud for Arsenal, Spurs were also interested, even Atlético de Madrid asked about him, the Birmingham club's response was clear, Benteke is worth a lot of dough, 47 million euros according to Daily Mirror. In the end, Christian has stayed and is playing at a high level, averaging one goal per game. This season at Villa Park may be the “year of the Beast”, his next victim Norwich City.
