There’s more to come – Benteke

first_img Press Association Christian Benteke has warned Liverpool there is more to come after admitting he is finally fighting fit. The revitalised Aston Villa striker has scored nine goals in his last eight games for club and country ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup semi final with the Reds. Benteke ruptured his Achilles 12 months ago and returned for Villa in October but admitted he came back too soon. The hitman appreciated the chance the Scot gave him by bringing him to Villa in 2012 but admitted his frustration as he struggled to rediscover his best form. He said: “I am not that guy who is going to complain. I understood the situation. “It was frustrating because I knew that I could do better. Every time after the game I said to myself ‘I can do better.’ It was frustrating to play a game with no chances, so I go back home with two feelings, because I’m happy because I can play without being injured, but frustration because I have no chances. “I know that I’m a good player. It’s just I have to show it.” Villa return to Wembley for the first time in five years and Benteke insisted they must make the final. He added: “I think when you play a semi-final you want to get to the end. You can’t say you’re just happy to be there even if you lose, you want to go until the end.” But after rediscovering his form, including a hat-trick in last week’s 3-3 draw with QPR, the Belgium international believes he can get even better. He said: “I still think I can do more, in everything. I can’t say I’m happy to be there now, I want to do more and more and more. “I’m scoring at the moment and now I play the way I want to play. Now I have more chances and I’m fully fit, that’s why I’m happy. “First, I came back early from my injury, so I worked hard to be back on the pitch. “I think I was a little bit tired in my body but now I am feeling very good. So that’s why I am performing now. “Before I didn’t get enough service and I wasn’t fit enough. I knew I would need time to be fit again. The confidence of the team was a little low so it was hard for everyone, so I can understand.” The 24-year-old scored the winner in Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Tottenham which lifted Villa six points above the bottom three. His form is a turnaround under Tim Sherwood after scoring just three times before the Villa boss’ arrival and he was also dropped towards the end of ex-manager Paul Lambert’s reign. last_img read more
