Christian Benitez has flown back to Ecuador, after the Birmingham striker's father was involved in a car accident.I've been touting Chucho for a while now and finally picked him last week. He returned an honest 8pts for and investment of under 7 so I was happy enough. I had already sold him on the barn door, however, to try to boost my forward line. So best wishes for a speedy recovery and we'll be excited to consider him again upon his return.
Blues did not hesitate in giving the forward permission to return to his homeland and manager Alex McLeish admits it is doubtful as to whether Benitez will be available to face Burnley at the weekend.
