Forum ITK says Benteke offered to Spurs

Forum ITK says Benteke offered to Spurs

There are suggestions of the Spurs forums that Christian Benteke has been offered to us although manager Jurgen Klopp, when asked about Chelsea speculation, dismissed the thought of him leaving in January.

He said that Benteke must play his way back into the side. "Today I decided not to start with Christian. It is up to the player to change this."

Liverpool played a passing game, Jurgen Klopp plays a pressing game and drops Benteke in favour of someone more suited to his style. I have always stated that Benteke is wrong for us, that he wasn't worth £25-million because he doesn't have the all-round ability we need. Yes he can score goals, but we don't cross the ball so his heading ability won't be put to its best use and that is his prime asset.

When you watch him his close control is not good and his first touch is heavy during build up play, which is rather important to us with our intricate passing. He has a lot of improving to do on the ground to be of use to us. He highlights the point I was making in an earlier article that we have to look at a player and assess what he would do in our system as opposed to assuming what he produces at his current club will be repeated with us.

In his case his experience in a similar type system suggests he isn't suited to ours.
