Benteke is close to coming back on the field
Crystal Palace’s striker should appear on the football field soon.
The forward had an operation on his knee two months ago, but is already at the finish line of his recovery.
Palace’s mentor Roy Hodgson said that Christian would return to training after the England Cup match against Grimsby, what will be held on January 6.
“Initially, the doctors said that Benteke would be unavailable until the end of December/beginning of January. And so it happened. But we are glad that Christian’s recovery is not delayed, we need him,” the coach ended.
Another Palace’s performer Wilfried Zaha received an offer to move to Chinese club Dalian Yifang and earn at least 44 million pounds for the next four years.
