It’s fair to say that when you sign a player for £32million for a player, fans have every right to expect them to be a top class addition.
After Christian Benteke almost single handedly saved Aston Villa from the drop last season, he seemed to be worth a punt at the next level up, so Liverpool pounced, believing that he would be the solution to their goalscoring problems.
However, despite a few goals here and there, he has struggled to replicate his best form and following today’s defeat to West Ham, he came in for some serious criticism from his own fans on social media.

Liverpool close in on £23.5m move to beat Spurs to top target Saido Berahino
Liverpool signed the wrong Belgian! Benteke's not even CLOSE to Lukaku.

@GerardEFC I'd actually rather have Andy Carroll back than have benteke at least he wins a header

Benteke offers about as much today as Balotelli would have. And he only cost us £16 million more #LFC

Benteke is £32.5m worth of fraud most useless player I've ever seen

I'd rather have Ibe shooting from distance than Benteke squandering glorious chances in the box.

Might as well play Warwick Davis instead of Benteke.
