Benteke's Potential Is Absolutely Frightening

Benteke's Potential Is Absolutely Frightening

After another monsterous performance from the big man Christian Benteke, Paul Lambert has waxed lyrical about how good this lad could actually be.

Speaking to the Official Site after ending the week on the perfect high, Lambert said of Benteke:

'I have seen that sort of thing all along. You run out of things to say about the big guy. He's unbelievable. He's 22 and he can be anything he wants. He's a top lad too which is important. His partnerships - whether it's with Andi, Darren, Gabby - it seems everyone likes playing alongside him. He's been sensational for us. There aren't many who can push him off the ball, that's for sure. He's got the potential to be one of the best. I don't want to put too much pressure on him but the potential for someone as young as that is an absolutely frightening thought.'

Anybody disagree?

Don't want to spoil the party but how long do we think he'll stay at VP?

As long as he and the club to Saurat...Don't forget he's still learning and next season may be harder once defences figure him out..

Spot on Steve! And if he gets any better,we sure will take him to SW6. He could be quite a buy.

Copy that @ohans,benteke is an absolute beast,he is simply awesome...he reminds of a certain ivorian named Didier Drogba

Proves that you dont need to spend 30m on a player, all you need is good scouts and a bloke that knows what hes doing.

I have to admit....Paul Lambert makes Martin O'Neill look like a fool in the transfer market. We might be onto something big here. Once this young squad matures with the confidence, we could be a real threat.

What an absolute star this chap is, causes problems every game....please dont think the grass is greener elsewhere x

Two Chelsea fans on this thread talking about how Benteke will be a Blues player one day and nobody challenges them!?!? Take our,no, please!!!
15/12/2012 22:25:00
Holding on to Benteke is only half the battle. Holding on to Lambert is the other half. Fergie, Wenger, Benitez and maybe Mancini are on their way out. Guardiola can't manage four clubs.

I assume Fifa have a rule against that
