Liverpool fans expressed their disapproval on twitter after Christian Benteke’s poor performance in the FA Cup final against Arsenal. The Belgian international has been heavily linked to Liverpool, and it seems Liverpool fans are not too happy about it.
According to reports, Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke has a £32.5m release clause in his contract, and Liverpool have to meet the release clause if they are hoping to sign th Belgian international. It is reported Christian Benteke is Liverpool’s top priority in the summer and are expected to submit a bid this week.
Here are the best Twitter reactions:
If anyone agrees to pay £32.5m for Benteke the FBI will want to follow the money trail.

I need to sleep off these tweets of people justifying Benteke for £35m.

Benteke would be awful for the style we are *supposed* to be playing. Can’t see how anyone in the club thinks he’d fit.

If I had Luis Figo on one wing and John Barnes on the other I still wouldn’t buy Benteke for £32.5m. #crosses

If Benteke is the answer then the question must be “How can we waste a very large pile of money and prove we know nothing about football?”

Rodgers is going teach Benteke how to defend a corner and then tell everyone about it

Would be typical of #LFC to pay £32.5m for Benteke after that display.
