In June, after the dust settles on Belgian's shock elimination from Euro 2016 at the hands of the Republic of Ireland, Christian Benteke can reflect on a season which has not been a total failure. While he has struggled to adapt to Liverpool's style of play, he has scored a number of critical goals, including winers against Sunerland and Crystal Palace. His season has got a further, slightly bizarre endorsement by Belgian rapper Axelence.
Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany - used to find a rhyme for 'company'- and Yannick Bolasie also get a mention, but Benteke is the headline act for some, obscure reason. Watch it below:
Belgian writer Kristof Terreur has gone to the trouble of finding the lyrics:

The entire song seems to be an exhortation to call the artist Benteke. This is not a courtesy many Liverpool extended to the man himself, who have spent much of the season calling Benteke a number of things other than his name.
A poor man's Anfield rap for me, Clive.
