New Crystal Palace signing Christian Benteke shows his class with note to Liverpool supporters

CHRISTIAN BENTEKE IS officially a Crystal Palace player after a deal, thought to be worth £27m plus £5m in add-ons – was agreed with Liverpool.

The Belgian striker has agreed a four-year deal at Selhurst Park.

But there was an embarrassing beginning to life at his new club. After the news was announced, there was an inevitable change to his Twitter bio.

Except, there was a slight problem.

The 25-year-old had, quite bizarrely, changed his employers to Burnley rather than Palace.

But he was quick to acknowledge the error.

The 25-year-old arrived at Liverpool with plenty of expectation at the start of last season but he struggled to impose himself in Jurgen Klopp’s system and always seemed destined to  move on.

Still, he showed his class with a note for Liverpool supporters.
