Jamie Carragher admits he’s concerned that Christian Benteke will struggle to fit into Liverpool’s playing style.
The Belgian striker finally sealed his move to Anfield yesterday and becomes the club’s second biggest transfer signing of all time after Andy Carroll.
‘My worry at Liverpool is, will he be suited to the short, sharp and incisive passing game that Rodgers favours?’ questioned Carragher on the Sky Sports website.
‘Brendan wants his side to play through teams, rather than getting the ball into him from wide areas, a fact Tim Sherwood pointed out as soon as Liverpool’s interest became public.
‘So while we’ve been impressed by how Benteke has torn teams apart — Liverpool, against whom he scored five goals in six games, have really suffered — we also know when his touch has been poor and his lack of interest has been apparent. He can be devastating and infuriating in equal measure.’
