Having value them an preliminary £27m from Liverpool in 2016, he has picked up a yearly wage of £6.2m on account of his £120k-per-week contract.
Including his six-year stint to his preliminary payment signifies that his profession at Selhurst Park has value the membership roughly £64.4m, and with solely 37 targets throughout his 177 appearances.
Ought to Crystal Palace promote Christian Benteke?
For each aim he scored, the membership has paid an astounding £1.7m and with a depressing return of simply 4 strikes final season, Patrick Vieira can be delighted to doubtlessly see the again of this hulking ahead who doesn’t actually match into his model of soccer.
His 0.2 targets per sport and simply 0.5 pictures on track per sport additionally recommend that regardless of his measurement he provides little aim menace.
The Belgian additionally missed eight huge probabilities, that means that if he does get the probabilities, there’s no relying on him even ending them. For a mid-table facet like Palace, these alternatives can’t be allowed to slip if they’re to progress as a facet.
His move completion charge of 68.3% additional helps this, as his lack of link-up play mixed together with his toothless nature in entrance of aim makes him fully unsuited to the French supervisor’s slick and speedy type.
Benteke has actually been a colossal waste of cash, and followers of the membership can be hoping that the 70% could be elevated by the tip of the switch window. It’s actually time for him to be ditched from the membership.
