It hasn’t worked with him. He doesn’t suit Klopp’s style of play,has looked lazy and disinterested at times,and consequently,he sits on the bench most weeks. He just doesn’t get in the box enough. Now,we mostly play without a striker,or Klopp turns to Origi instead. Take him back! Lol
S/Teeth I do take your point on 32 million and another one to ‘add in the basket’ of players reaching the point of being a waste of big money.
I’ve always had in my mind that if you’re not getting the service, you then have to go out and hunt for the ball yourself. That means playing deep, getting involved in tackles/winning the ball, then picking out a red shirt and making a run.
Sturridge happens to do this, but Benteke: well, all I see is somebody pedestrian and marked by opposition.
Benteke is top draw! scored goals at every team and every level.. if its not working for him at Liverpool don’t blame him..such a lazy argument to just say he is lazy..and are you having one to one chats with Klopp? has he told you he wants Benteke to drop deep and find ball? look elsewhere for the issue not at Benteke! This is why I didn’t want him to go to Liverpool, I knew you wouldn’t appreciate him and I knew it wouldn’t be long before you got on his back.. a trait that is becoming all to familiar for Liverpool fans, whether it be managers or players.. not won the league in 25 years but think you have a god given right to win everything still! such a shame as you used to stand by your people through thick and thin.. Liverpool are classic reflection of how football and their fans have changed.. a shame for such a great club..
Jimmytwoshoes no one has a God given right to win anything. I was just expecting a bit more from him,considering he cost us so much money. He’s not a Klopp signing,and there are rumours that Chelsea will make a move for him in January. If we get an offer anywhere near what we paid you for him,I think he will be sold. I rate him as a player,always have. It just hasn’t worked out for him yet,and I think,in fairness,part of that may be because Klopp normally doesn’t play with a target man type striker. I hope he goes on and proves me wrong,I really do. At the moment,he’s been at the club since August and scored 4 goals. That isn’t good enough. Sturridge has scored more than that,and he’s missed most of the season through injury. Benteke needs to improve, or he won’t play,like he hasn’t lately
