Brendan Rodgers confident about Christian Benteke

The Belgium international signed for the Reds a few days back from Aston Villa and his new manager is confident that the striker will be a huge success in Merseyside

Rodgers was finally able to sign a world class striker in the shape of Belgium international Christian Benteke and the club’s manager says that he will be a huge success at the club.

Many people feel that the new signing will struggle at the club but Rodgers says that he already has a plan to get the best out of the striker when the new season begins.

“I’ve heard and seen stuff that he won’t fit the style we play but I think he will complement it and help us,” Rodgers told Liverpool Echo.

“He is a big guy but he has got the attributes that I like in terms of pace and movement and he gets all type of goals.


“He is great in the air, strong, can hold the game up and can play on the counter attack. And he can play when the team is deep because he can hold the ball up with his physical strength.


“He is a boy that is still improving his game so I don’t think there is any doubt he will fit our tactical idea of the game. He can be a huge player for us.”
