Villa boss Lambert tells Belgium: Benteke not fit

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is adamant Christian Benteke is not fit.

Benteke has been called up by Belgium despite missing yesterday's 0-0 draw with Hull City.

"We're obliged to let him go and Belgium have to assess him but I trust Christian to be honest," said Lambert.

"He'll know himself how he's feeling. At this time I wouldn't say he was fit."
