The tweets as Christian Benteke’s season & World Cup dream end with a torn achilles tendon at Aston Villa training

Belgium news outlet Het Laatste Nieuws have broken the news on Thursday that Aston Villa and Belgium forward Christian Benteke is suspected to have torn his achilles tendon.

Whilst no confirmation has yet been made by Aston Villa, all indications are that Benteke is now facing a period of 6-8 months on the treatment table.

The cause of the injury is also still unknown.

The news will clearly be a big blow for the 23-year-old Villa striker who had been set to lead the Red Devils attack at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where Belgium are drawn against Algeria, Russia and South Korea.
