Crystal Palace striker Benteke learning to ignore critics

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke admits he tries to ignore his critics.

Benteke says having a young family allows him to find perspective when it comes to his on-field form.

He told La Meuse: “It's not a speech of circumstances, but I don't pay attention to critics because I'm probably the toughest when it comes to analysing my performances.

“I've always been hard on myself and I think it's more important than what people or football specialists can think.

"More globally, I do listen, but with age and two kids, you put things in perspective more easily and see things differently, and even if it isn't always easy, you need to stay positive because that's the only way to move forward."
