Glenn Hoddle jokes at Christian Benteke's expense during Liverpool's 3-0 win against Man City
Glenn Hoddle couldn’t resist a joke at Christian Benteke’s expense during his commentary on Wednesday night.
Liverpool roared to a 3-0 victory over Manchester City in the Premier League on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Adam Lallana, James Milner and Roberto Firmino.
Jurgen Klopp opted to hand Benteke a rare appearance from the bench at Anfield as the giant striker replaced compatriot Divock Origi.
And former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur manager Hoddle delivered a hilarious line during BT Sport’s coverage of the Premier League clash on Merseyside.
