Christian Benteke’s latest social media footage has prompted Aston Villa fans to call on the Belgian striker to return to the club.
Villa fans have had to suffer this season having seen their side struggle to find consistent form in the Premier League, resulting in their current league standing of 19th.
Having failed to find a regular goalscorer this term, Villa boss Dean Smith has juggled between Brazilian Wesley and new signing Mbwana Samatta.
One player who did find the back of the net during his time at Villa Park was Belgian striker Benteke, netting 49 goals in 101 games between 2012 and 2015.
Having left the Midlands in 2015 for a move to Liverpool, where he spent one season, the Belgium international has been playing his football with Crystal Palace for the previous four seasons.
Netting a superb hat-trick during his time in a Claret and Blue shirt against Sunderland, Benteke has revisited that game by posting the highlights of each goal on his official Twitter account, prompting Villa fans to respond and call for him to return to the club.
