- The Reds signed Benteke for £32.5 million in 2015.
- However, the Belgian international had a poor season at Anfield and was sold by Jurgen Klopp a year later.
- Benteke revealed that he regrets his time at Liverpool.
- He adds that he wishes that he got more time to show a better version of himself at Anfield.
The signing of Christian Benteke remains one of Liverpool's biggest transfer mistakes in recent times.
Signed by Brendan Rodgers for £32.5 million in 2015, Benteke was the Reds' second-most expensive transfer at the time. However, he was sold a year later by Jurgen Klopp as he did not fit the German's system.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Benteke spoke of his time at Anfield: "That was a regret. I don't like that term but I wish I had more time to prove myself because I could have shown a better Benteke."
Previously, the striker had told SPORTBible: "When he came to Liverpool Klopp said, 'Sorry, I want to play a different [style of] football - I want to have quick, small, sharp players'.
"I tried to fight for my spot, but at the end of the season he said, 'It's best if you find a new situation too, I won't hold you up'."
Benteke has gone from being a goal-every-other-game striker to not scoring at Selhurst Park for Crystal Palace in over two years.
His Anfield career ended with 10 goals in 42 appearances, and it was clear that he was never going to cut it under Klopp.
The Reds sold him for £27 million to Crystal Palace in 2016, so not a lot of harm was done to the club - all's well that ends well.
