Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke has been selected for the Belgium squad once again and many Palace fans find it hilarious.
Will this be Wilfried Zaha's final season at Crystal Palace?
In Palace’s seven league games this season, the 28-year-old forward has been selected to start just twice. It appears Roy Hodgson’s patience has fully run out with the striker, with the player not starting a league game since Palace’s trip to Sheffield United in the second game of the campaign.
With Benteke’s wages allegedly costing the club £120,000-per-week (Spotrac), Palace are left with a bit of a dilemma with his future. Benteke’s contract runs out at the end of the season, but the club also have an option to extend the deal by another year. The club have to consider whether they would rather extend it and hope that someone comes in with a cash offer to take them off their hands, or they can cut their losses by just allowing him to leave on a free at the end of the season.
By the look of the responses below, it seems many Palace fans would rather get him off the books sooner rather than later.
reckon I could play up front for Belgium

The fact he gets picked for Belgium every squad makes his form for us even more strange

Are you serious, can you leave him there please. I never want to see him in a palace shirt agdin; let alone actually get on the pitch in one.
