The former Aston Villa striker endured a day to forget against Watford.
Given a rare chance to impress under Jurgen Klopp, the maligned Belgian striker missed a number of chances - including a seemingly gilt-edged header late on.
The 25-year-old did set up Joe Allen's first-half opener against the Hornets, but overall the former Aston Villa hitman, a £32.5 million signing last summer, did little to justify his selection at Anfield yesterday.
Liverpool fans have been forced to be patient with their club's hefty investment through a lack of fitness and form, but patience appears to be wearing thin after a host of supporters slammed the forward on Twitter afterwards.
Back from a great day at Anfield. My son's first game... On the Kop too. And must say that Joe Allen was immense today. Benteke not so #lfc— Rob Johnson (@Rob_Johnson_69) May 8, 2016
Honestly, wouldn't be that surprised if Benteke would still be at LFC after the summer.— Olafur H. Tomasson (@Olafur_Tomasson) May 8, 2016
That miss is why Benteke won't be at Anfield next season #LFC— Dipesh Shah (@dipeshshaha) May 8, 2016
Was honestly excited when we got Benteke but he's simply not mobile enough for our style of play under Klopp #LFC— Glyn Fletcher (@glynfletcher) May 8, 2016
@Delboy_LFC Benteke was a bad buy ,was against from the start , saw him as another Andy Carroll didn't fit BR plans and same for Klopp— Rick White (@Durban_Red) May 8, 2016
@Ole_LFC Can't argue with that, but Benteke looks like a Groom that has arrived at the wrong Wedding every time he plays— Mark Herridge (@markaherridge) May 8, 2016
@Anything_LFC Allen, Firmino and Coutinho. Benteke proved today that he shouldn't be started. EVER.— Fraser (@TurmoilFO) May 8, 2016
Skrtel had a cracking game today! Nothing good left to say about Benteke anymore. He's gone on the first offer we receive. #LFC— Tommy Hull (@TOMMYHULL_LFC) May 8, 2016
How many chances did Benteke manage to miss today? Shocking. #LFC— Georgia Robinson (@grob91) May 8, 2016
Benteke. Worst LFC forward for years. Thaught it in aug and still do. https://t.co/ZbsGfxBTQ6— Mattias Karlsson (@_slashing_) May 8, 2016
It remains to be seen whether Klopp has a long-term plan for Benteke - who was signed by the German's predecessor Brendan Rodgers - but the evidence may suggest that his future on Merseyside looks rather bleak.
The Reds have a host of striking options, with Divock Origi, Daniel Sturridge and fit-again Danny Ings perhaps vying for the number nine role next season, which leaves Benteke at something of a crossroads.
