Christian Benteke Key To Aston Villa Success – Tim Sherwood

Christian Benteke

Reports are out claiming that Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood feels Christian Benteke is key to their survival efforts.

The Belgium international striker hit a hat-trick in their draw with QPR on Monday.

Sherwood said: “Christian is a key to our success because he scores goals.

“You guys (the press) were questioning Christian and saying it must’ve been a one-off a couple of seasons ago. You didn’t look for any mitigating circumstances.

“Do you think he was starved of service?

“And if you don’t feel well then it’s like a bit of medicine if people are throwing it down your throat.

“All of a sudden you feel better and you feel more like yourself?

“You look at his record, it’s one in two.”
