Lambert relief at Benteke prognosis

first_imgAston Villa boss Paul Lambert is thankful Christian Benteke’s hip injury has not proved to be as serious as he first feared. Press Association However, when the the former Genk man first went down, the worry was he would be out of action for much longer. “The medical people give you the best and worst-case scenario,” said Lambert. “You are never quite sure until you hear from the professor. “Thankfully it is not too serious. Maybe four, five, six weeks or so.” Lambert was speaking after his side’s 4-0 Capital One Cup drubbing by Tottenham at Villa Park. The Scot felt the eventual scoreline, following two goals from Jermain Defoe in addition to efforts from Paulinho and Nacer Chadli, was harsh on his team. And the game hinged on a bizarre incident at the start of the second half, when Jan Vertonghen stumbled and as he was falling in the box made a grab for Villa substitute Nicklas Helenius. The Belgian succeeded only in grabbing the striker’s shorts, yanking them down to his knees just as he was about to shoot. Lambert has confirmed the Belgium forward will be out of action for up to six weeks with the injury he sustained during Saturday’s win at Norwich. It will keep Benteke out until November, a period that includes Belgium’s final World Cup qualifiers. Helenius carried on anyway, blasting over from an acute angle. To Lambert’s disbelief, referee Jon Moss opted to give a goal-kick rather than a penalty that surely would have been accompanied by Vertonghen’s exit. “It is the first time I have seen something like that happen,” said the Villa chief. “You hope you get those decisions. I don’t think anybody could believe he wasn’t pulled back.” Lambert wondered whether Villa would have got the spot-kick had Helenius opted to go down rather than stay on his feet and go for goal, although he did recall a similar incident at Arsenal on the opening day of the season. “I thought that myself,” he said. “But does it matter whether he has shot or not? At Arsenal the referee waited. “I have certainly not seen anything like that before.” Even Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas conceded Moss had got it wrong. “It was a difficult decision for the referee,” said Villas-Boas. “I can understand why Paul would not be happy with that decision. “Most likely in this situation there is no advantage to be gained and the penalty has to be whistled. “Probably we got away with it.” last_img read more

Vargas joins QPR on loan

first_img The 24-year-old had attracted interest from across Europe after he helped his country to the knockout stages of the World Cup earlier this summer. QPR boss Harry Redknapp said on the club’s official Twitter account: “Eduardo is a quality player. He’s sharp, he’s bright, and he’s very lively on and off the ball. QPR have announced the signing of Chile forward Eduardo Vargas on a season-long loan from Napoli. “He can play as a number nine, he can play in behind, he can play wide, he’s very versatile.” The news of the deal to loan Vargas comes a day after Leroy Fer completed his move to Loftus Road from Norwich for an undisclosed fee. Vargas, who has also played on loan at Valencia during his time on Napoli’s books, told the London club’s official website: “I’ve come here to do as much as I can and I’m very happy to play for QPR. “It’s a very exciting league and a super-competitive league and a lot of players look forward to coming to play here in England. I’m looking forward to it. “My biggest characteristic is one of speed. I’m always looking towards goal. “My intention is to give 100 per cent and not let myself down and to work hard for the team.” Vargas scored five goals in 25 appearances for Valencia and has fired 15 in 32 games for Chile, most notably the winner against Spain in the World Cup group stages. He joins countryman Mauricio Isla in west London after the 26-year-old moved to QPR last month. Vargas is the Hoops’ sixth signing of the summer following Fer, Isla, Rio Ferdinand, Jordon Mutch and Steven Caulker. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
