Liverpool striker Christian Benteke is determined to hold talks with manager Jurgen Klopp over his future.
The Belgian striker who signed from Aston Villa over the summer has found first team opportunities hard to come by but has insisted he is keen to stay at Anfield, despite a difficult season following the appointment of the German in October. But he has started just three Premier League games this year under Klopp and was introduced for the final seven minutes of the Europa League final against Sevilla, raising further doubts over his future.
When asked he if he was happy to stay, Benteke said: “Of course, I signed for five years, I didn’t sign for one year. But now I have to speak with the manager and see his plan for next season. “I am not the only one who is going to do that, I think a lot of players want to know what is going to happen.My first season was tough but I knew Liverpool was a massive club with a lot of pressure, with a lot of good players and it wasn’t easy but I keep going. I never doubt myself and I am going to now focus on the Euros and we will see next season.Of course I have to adapt to the manager but now the season is over and we want to try to speak with him and to try and find a solution.”
