Liverpool striker Christian Benteke reflects on great start after wonder goal
Liverpool striker Christian Benteke is delighted with his first goal for the Reds in a 2-1 win against Swindon Town on Sunday
Christian Benteke was delighted to start his Liverpool career with a goal after he scored a wonder strike in a 2-1 win against Swindon Town.
The Belgium international controlled a high cross on his chest before he unleashed a powerful volley in the second half to break the deadlock at City Ground.
Benteke became Liverpool’s second most-expensive signing in history after he completed a £32.5m move to Anfield from Aston Villa last month.
And the Liverpool signing took to Twitter after he opened his Reds account in sensational fashion.
Always nice to start with a win and a goal looking forward to the season thank you for your welcome😊 #YNWA

Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno, who moved to Merseyside from Sevilla in a £12m deal last summer, was similarly ecstatic to prepare for next week’s trip to Stoke City with a friendly win.
