Christian Benteke has declared his love for Arsenal and revealed he thought Aston Villa were based in London before he signed for the Midlands club back in 2012.
‘Arsenal are the club I love.
‘I like their philosophy of selecting young players and, besides, they had Thierry Henry.
‘For me he is the best player in the world and was my boyhood idol. I’m not afraid of making enemies at Villa by saying I love Arsenal.’
The 21-year-old added:
‘When I joined Villa I didn’t know where they played. I thought they were a London club!
