Benteke Facts – The Top 10 of the New Christian Benteke Phenomena


By Kerry Lenihan

Villa supporters have a good instinct for a potential hero. It didn’t matter that Ron Vlaar was shipping three goals a game in preseason, to know he’d come good. Christian Benteke didn’t even need to play before he was a Holte End hero and had his own Twitter craze ‘Benteke Facts’.  After playing for 19 minutes and scoring on his debut, ‘Benteke Facts’ was even trending on Twitter.  So in order to educate Villa fans not on twitter about some amazing facts about the team’s new signing, here is a Top 10 of Benteke Facts (and almost true) in no particular order:

1. Benteke is so huge that when Bannan jumped on him to celebrate his goal, his ears popped @ceryshoops

2. It wasn’t the Hulk in the last Avengers movie, it was Benteke sprayed green. @Ad_avfc
