Crystal Palace: Fans go meme crazy in response to Christian Benteke’s contract extension

Many Crystal Palace fans have responded on Twitter to the news that Christian Benteke has signed a new contract extension at the club – and many have seen the funny side.

Will this be Wilfried Zaha's final season at Crystal Palace?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Palace’s club account tweeted yesterday that Christian Benteke has signed a one-year extension at the club, meaning that his deal will now end in 2020/21.

Before the new contract, Benteke was set to have his contract expire at the end of the season, which would have seen Palace fail to recuperate a single penny after spending £28m on him (Transfermarkt).

Benteke’s career at Palace has been a mixed one. After a great start, he has struggled massively. In his 98 games for Palace, he has scored 21 times and assisted nine times – not a particularly great record considering he scored 17 goals in his first 40 games.

Many Palace fans were shocked – if the responses on Twitter were anything to go by. Floods of surprised memes came in about the news – and here are some of the best of ones.
