Christian Benteke's spell at Crystal Palace gets off to a bad start after an embarrassing Twitter blunder
Published 20/08/2016 | 14:06
Christian Benteke was today officially announced as a Crystal Palace player but it looks like his Twitter feed thought he signed for a Premier League rival.
The Belgian's Twitter account was updated to reflect his new employer, with a profile photo of Benteke in a Palace jersey added alongside a new bio.
Unfortunately, while the photo was correct, whoever changed Benteke's blurb called him a 'Burnley FC' striker.
The ex-Liverpool forward quickly tweeted an explanation, laying the blame solely at the feet of his social media manager.
Twitter fails aside, it will be interesting to see if Benteke can recapture his Aston Villa form in London, playing in a style more suited to his strengths.
