We hope Christian Benteke justifies his price-tag at Palace, as he never got a fair crack of the whip at Liverpool.
This was nobody’s fault – we appointed Jurgen Klopp, whose style just didn’t suit the Belgian. So the club have done excellently to recoup what we spent on him 12 months ago.
It’s this reason that fans sent him messages of good luck via Twitter, rather than merely celebrating the money in.
Good form all round.
So disappointed in Palace for not announcing Benteke with this.https://t.co/JNyoYCVKr8

Benteke is a class signing for Palace.

Benteke will do wonders at Palace I’m calling it now

Benteke + Allen + Skrtel + Ibe + Smith + Canos + Sinclair = £78m!
Unbelievable window on the selling front for #LFC

Good luck to Benteke. Confirmed he has joined Crystal Palace.

Benteke is a decent footballer he just didn’t fit our style. Now watch him score plenty against us… Good luck in Palace! @chrisbenteke

Might as well put your life’s savings on Benteke scoring against us this season cause it’s a banker

Good luck Christian “Big Ben” Benteke. Sorry it didn’t work out at Liverpool, #YNWA ??
