Christian Benteke DID NOT Disrespect Villa

Well, this is very important. This sort of journalism causes offense, upset and anger.

Christian Benteke has been quoted in the press today saying he loves Arsenal, wants to move from Villa, didn`t even realise we weren`t a London club etc.

I`m not going to link to the articles, I`m just not prepared to give them any page impressions at all.

Read what they say he said. NO PLAYER would say that, NO PLAYER would dare.

I`ve just spoken to a close contact at Villa who said this was an interview in French, for Belgian tv and he simply has not said these things. He`s been "misconstrued, misrepresented" and most importantly I was told "Christian is VERY upset that these quotes have been attributed to him, he is delighted to be at Villa and has been heartened by the way the fans have taken to him so quickly."

The club will get some quotes out later to totally dismiss these horrible reports. Can I ask all of you who read this to 'facebook like` or re-tweet and generally share around.

If he had said anything like this, I`d have actually bombed him straight back out in January, but put simply, he hasn`t.
