Video: Christian Benteke scores brilliant volley on Liverpool debut
Benteke was making his debut for Liverpool
Christian Benteke made a big money move to Liverpool after the Reds spent £32.5million fee on the Belgian. The big striker scored a brilliant volley against Swindon Town which may suggest to the Liverpool fans that it was money well spent.
Since the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, Liverpool have struggled to replace the amount of goals he scored for the Anfield club. The capture of Benteke was all about addressing that issue and the former Aston Villa striker may just be the answer Brendan Rodgers has been looking for.
The 24-year-old who was making his debut for the Anfield outfit marked his first game with a sweetly struck volley that will not be forgotten anytime soon by the Liverpool fans. The forward chested a ball that was chipped onto him by Philippe Coutinho and struck it on the volley.
Liverpool would be hoping that Benteke hits the ground running for his new club as they look to fight for a Champions League spot in the new season. Liverpool have a tough set of fixtures and they start their campaign away at Stoke City.
