Agbonlahor: I'm happy to be behind Benteke on terrace song setlist


Brown

Gabby Agbonlahor is happy to play second fiddle to Christian Benteke in the terrace charts.

Agbonlahor has been thrilled to see Benteke on song this season in his first campaign in claret and blue.

He says the players and the crowd are in harmony about Benteke's status as a heroic forward figure.

Agbonlahor believes Benteke's anthem - sung to the tune of White Stripes 'Seven Nation Army' - is a clear indicator of the powerful striker's appeal with supporters.

And the 26-year-old is happy if he has to wait a while for his own admiring jingle - belted out to 'Karma Chameleon' by Culture Club - to echo across the football airwaves.

Asked about Benteke's place in the pantheon of strikers he's played with, Agbonlahor said: "For me he's one of the best.

"He's come into the league and no-one knew much about him. He's just adapted.

"A lot of teams in the Premier League would love to have him in their side.

"He works hard in training. Look at the way he plays the game. His composure is excellent, he has presence as a big guy and he has quite a bit of pace.

"Every aspect of his game top quality.

"He's learning his trade here and he's enjoying his football here.

"He's having a great first season in the Premier League and he's only going to get better for us with each successive season he's here.

"The fans love him too. He's the first name that they sing. They have really taken to him.

"I might get second or third on the playlist - but I'll take that."

Arrow BulletAmbassador Agbonlahor spoke at the launch event for 'Acorns Day', which is set to take place at the QPR game.
