Christian Benteke tries his hand at modelling ahead of Newcastle v Liverpool

Christian Benteke was looking sharp ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Newcastle United on Sunday.

The Belgium international didn’t feature in the Reds’s 6-1 win against Southampton in League Cup quarter-final at St Mary’s on Wednesday night.

Benteke lasted 69 minutes of Liverpool’s 1-0 win against Swansea City at Anfield in the Premier League before he was replaced by Daniel Sturridge on Sunday.

And the 24-year-old reposted a photo from a recent modelling shoot on his Instagram page on Thursday morning which showed the Belgian looking suave.

Benteke moved to Liverpool in a £32.5m deal from Aston Villa in the summer transfer window as he became Liverpool’s second-most expensive signing of all-time.

The Belgium international has scored four times in 11 Premier League games for the Merseyside outfit after his big-money switch.

Benteke scored his last Liverpool goal in a 2-1 victory over Bordeaux in the Europa League at Anfield last week.
