According to the Daily Star, when Benteke was asked recently which coach (or coaches) he’d most like to play for, the Belgian superstar replied, “Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola.”
Benteke explained that he admires the achievements of the Chelsea and Bayern Munich managers, and likes the different approach that the two managers take with their teams.
“Not only because of their achievements: they have won everything,” Benteke said. “Their approach is completely different and it is also why I would like to work with both.”
The Liverpool striker, who signed with the club on a transfer from Aston Villa this past summer, also may have taken a slight shot at his club’s city by implying that the weather in Merseyside is less than ideal.
“Nothing bothers me (about living in England) apart from the climate, perhaps especially in Liverpool,” Benteke said.
Christian Benteke has two goals for the Reds this season and 44 Premier League goals since he joined Aston Villa back in 2012. Last season Benteke was the Premier League Player of the Month for April and was vital in helping the Villains stave off relegation and make it to the FA Cup Final.
Representing Belgium, Benteke has seven goals since joining the national team in 2010.
