Vlaar hails Benteke impact

Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar has praised the impact that Belgian 22-year old striker Christian Benteke has had on the team this season.

He's unbelievably strong. Fortunately when we play 11 versus 11 he's always on my team because most of the time we are getting ready for the next game.

He's only 22. I don't think there are young players who have done more than him this season.

He has been very important and he will be important again in these last couple of games for us.
