Who is Benteke?

Christian Benteke Liolo (born 3 December 1990) is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a striker for English club Crystal Palace and the Belgium national team.

He began his career at Standard Liège, playing a part in their 2008–09 Belgian First Division triumph. The fee for the 25-year-old forward is thought to be around £27m, with a further £5m due in add-ons.

This is what the Belgium international had to say to his former club as he joins to his new team.

Christian  joined the Reds for £32.5m in July 2015 and scored 10 goals, but started only eight Premier League games under new boss Jurgen Klopp.

Crystal palace welcomes the striker with joy after they lost one of the players Yannick Bolasie to everton this very summer.

He becomes Palace’s fourth signing of the summer after Andros Townsend, James Tomkins and Steve Mandanda.

“I’m very happy to commit my future to Crystal Palace,” said former Aston Villa player Benteke, who has six goals in 26 games for his country.
