Lambert On Benteke 'Quotes' & Some Actual Quotes

Just a follow up to Christian Benteke DID NOT Disrespect Villa.

Paul Lambert has now been quoted on the official site saying he won`t lose any sleep over this and that he the player has been 'misrepresented`.

'I wouldn't put too much credence into it - things can be misconstrued. I think it's naughty what has been done. The big guy is more than happy here. He's playing really well and he's happy the way he is."

Adding, 'He's still a kid and he's only been in the country a couple of months but the fans have taken to him here and rightly so."

'When the story says that he didn't really care if he upset Aston Villa fans, I think that's very naughty."

Also, quotes from last weeks` official news and record programme:

Benteke said:

'I was obviously hoping for success when I came here and I feel I've done well so far. I really feel at home. People have made such an effort to welcome me into the club and I already feel a part of it. I wanted to come to England anyway and to come to a club like Villa was wonderful. The facilities are superb and the club has such a great tradition. I throw myself into everything I do and I believe that if you work hard you will reap the rewards.'

So there you go.

The London press causing *****e again Fear ....... we all have hero's and he is no different, he will just have to be careful with what he says as he obviously has no idea of how the English press are.

if he gets up to 12-15 this season a disorderly queue will start forming next summer, no doubt egged on by the gutter snipes. if if if.....but should that come to be, if Lerner tries to move him on it will probably be the last straw.

to be fair malacaxeta, you're talking about last straws with regards to a hypothetical situation that hasn't even happened yet. at least only beat Randy with things he's actually done wrong as of now, not future predictions yknow? lets enjoy Benteke in the present

I believe more of what I read in Lord of the Rings than I do in the Sun,Mail etc

I don't think he would say such things and think, It's been blown way out of proportion
16/11/2012 12:51:00
I read what they say he said for me the first line about not caring about making enemies is the only bad thing in it and I think we can all agree no player would say something like that or at least as blatantly... After that the rest isnt disrespectful IMO even if it was changed around to sell some papers...

Mr Zig - its all connected in with how Lerner appears to be treating Bent which I think has been, lets say "ill advised". Somebody already said on the other thread to this story that if Arsenal came in with a 15m offer for Big can guess the rest. This "story" already has the whiff of agent to it. I d actually like to see a video interview with Big Chris on the Official Site where he tells it straight to what I actually said.
