Christian Benteke Liolo is a Belgian football player of Congolese origin. He came to Anfield in June 2015 with a remarkable record. Earlier, he spent three seasons playing for Belgian football club Genk.
Benteke started his professional career in 2007 at Belgian football club Genk. A year later, he moved to Standard, but he never took the field, because he played on loan twice, at Kortrijk and Mechelen.
In 2011, Benteke returned to Genk and in the first season he became the best striker of the team scoring 19 goals in 37 appearances.
Unfortunately for Genk, when the football player scored 4 goals in 8 games of a new season, confirming his professionalism, Benteke joined Aston Villa and almost at once became a darling of Birmingham.
In June 2015, Benteke was transferred to Liverpool for £32.5 million and he debuted in a game against Swindon Town scoring a goal.
Christian Benteke has been playing for the Belgian national football team since 2010. In the course of training for the World Cup in Brazil, he injured a tendon and missed the championship. However, very soon he recovered and continues to delight his fans by brilliant performance.
