New Crystal Palace forward Christian Benteke has said he has no regrets over joining Liverpool in 2015 despite his brief stay at the club.
“It was an honour to play for Liverpool, such a big club with such a big history,” Benteke told Sky Sports.
“I didn’t play or perform as I wanted. It was my decision to go there and I don’t regret anything.
“I didn’t have the chances to perform. I learned that’s football. That is why I have no anger against anyone there.”

“[The] frustration is at myself that in the short time I had to play I didn’t do it as I wanted. Brendan [Rodgers] did everything for me to come there, then I had my injury and I couldn’t help. I wanted to do more.”
“I am very happy to be here and to have the chance to show myself again,” Benteke added. “I am really looking forward to the new challenge.
“I have been in the Premier League for four years and, without wanting to sound arrogant, have been doing well. I want to show again what I can do because last year I didn’t have the chance to do it all season.
