Christian Benteke insists he will fight for Liverpool stay

Christian Benteke appears to have put rumours linking him with a move away from Liverpool to bed.

The Belgian, who joined last summer for an eye-watering £32.5 million, has struggled throughout his first term at Anfield and seen his future thrown into doubt.

His claim that manager Jurgen Klopp “ignores him” in March only worsened his situation at Liverpool, but following a recent return to form, it appears Benteke is willing to fight for his place.

According to the Mirror, he said: “When I signed I didn’t sign for one year - I want to stay here next year.

“I think I have the quality and the manager knows my strengths and weaknesses - I’ve no doubt (Klopp can make me better).

“I know I’ve had a tough season but I’m going to fight until the end. Everything can change so I keep focused and keep going for the team and myself.”

Benteke’s last-minute strike against Chelsea in mid-week saw his tally for the season rise to ten goals, nine of which coming in the Premier League.

Only Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino have scored more.

It’s undoubtedly been a disappointing season for the Belgium international yet there’s little doubt he can still become an important player on Merseyside.

“I try to do my best when the manager needs me,” he continued. “So we will see what’s going to happen.”

Benteke will hope he can help guide Liverpool to Europa League success next Wednesday when they meet Sevilla in the final.
