Just a follow up to Christian Benteke DID NOT Disrespect Villa.

Paul Lambert has now been quoted on the official site saying he won`t lose any sleep over this and that he the player has been ‘misrepresented`.

‘I wouldn’t put too much credence into it – things can be misconstrued. I think it’s naughty what has been done. The big guy is more than happy here. He’s playing really well and he’s happy the way he is.”

Adding, ‘He’s still a kid and he’s only been in the country a couple of months but the fans have taken to him here and rightly so.”

‘When the story says that he didn’t really care if he upset Aston Villa fans, I think that’s very naughty.”

Also, quotes from last weeks` official news and record programme:

Benteke said:

‘I was obviously hoping for success when I came here and I feel I’ve done well so far. I really feel at home. People have made such an effort to welcome me into the club and I already feel a part of it. I wanted to come to England anyway and to come to a club like Villa was wonderful. The facilities are superb and the club has such a great tradition. I throw myself into everything I do and I believe that if you work hard you will reap the rewards.’

So there you go.
