Villa boss Lambert excited to have Benteke back

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is excited to have Christian Benteke back in harness.

Benteke made his comeback in Tuesday's 2-0 pre-season defeat at Luton after missing the club's German tour.

Lambert said: "The pleasing thing was Christian being back. Some of his touches were brilliant.

"He had 45 minutes. He's only done a bit of training. He's still got to work on match fitness but that 45 minutes will do him the world of good."
