Sub standard: Benteke had a disappointing hour before being withdrawn

By Coral Barry

Christian Benteke launched a stinging attack on Jurgen Klopp – and Liverpool fans are waving goodbye their £32.5million striker.

The Belgian used the international break to hit out at his manager, telling Belgian media that he cannot understand why Klopp tried to sign him at Borussia Dortmund and is now ignoring him at Anfield.

Benteke, 25, has managed just 12 league starts all season after his big money move to Liverpool in last summer and his last league start under Klopp was in the 2-0 defeat to West Ham on 2 January.

The striker was furious when asked about his situation at Anfield and Liverpool supporters could not believe Benteke’s comments.

Cameras caught Klopp berating Benteke after the embarrassing 3-2 loss to Southampton on Sunday and it seems as though the striker has just poured fuel on his increasingly fiery relationship with his manager.

Liverpool fans seem to think the Belgian has just ended his Anfield career, but this one supporter seems more interested in how Klopp will respond to Benteke’s grievances.

In other Liverpool news, Klopp is planning to return to Borussia Dortmund for a player raid.
