ANDRO BACS BIG BEN TO FIRE AGAIN
CHRISTIAN BENTEKE’S decision to stay at Aston Villa is vital to their hopes this season, according to team-mate Leandro Bacuna.
The Belgium ace, who bagged 19 Premier League goals last term, performed a shock U-turn earlier this month when he snubbed interest from Tottenham.
And new boy Bacuna reckons Benteke – who scored a hat-trick in Friday’s 5-1 win at Crewe – can be even better this term.
“The fans are delighted Christian has signed a new deal and so are the players,” said Bacuna.
“He’s big, strong, a good finisher and a good provider of chances. It was important he stayed.
“He wants to show what he can do again after how well he did last season.”
