World-class Benteke can be anything - Villa boss Lambert

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert believes Christian Benteke can become anything.

The 22-year old Belgian striker scored a hat-trick in the second half as Villa cruised past Sunderland 6-1 on Monday night prompting his boss to suggest that there is no limit to his ability.

"He's been world class," he told Sky Sports 1.

"For somebody to come to this country - we brought him at 21... The greatest compliment I can give him is that he's a really humble guy who can be anything."

Benteke has scored a total of 22 goals for Villa since joining from RacingGenk for £7million last summer.
