Striker Benteke to undergo surgery after injury blow


Christian Benteke will undergo surgery after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon injury today in training.

He will be out for a minimum of six months.

"It's a terrible blow both for Christian and for the Club," said Villa manager Paul Lambert.

"He will miss the rest of the season, obviously, and also the World Cup. But he'll work hard because that's what he does and he'll come back for us stronger than ever next season."
