Benteke eager to form deadly Villa partnership with Kozak

Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke believes he and new signing Libor Kozak can form a strong on-field relationship.

The duo only briefly played alongside each other in the weekend's 2-1 loss to Newcastle United after former Lazio man Kozak came on as a second half substitute but Benteke is tipping them to emerge as a goal-heavy pairing.

"I think he will help me a lot and do well for the team as well," he said.

"We can learn from each other. I haven't trained much with him because he went away with his national team.

"But you can see he has good qualities with his finishing and I hope he's going to score some goals for the team."
