MAY 14, 2019 FOOTBALL NEWS

Crystal Palace striker, Wilfried Zaha has hailed Ghanaian international Jeffrey Schlupp describing him as an indispensable squad member of the Eagles.

The former Leicester City star has been a key player for Roy Hodgson's side in the just ended season.

The Ivorian international mentioned that Schlupp’s name might not necessarily be first on the team sheet but he is a player they cannot do away with.

“Schlupp may not be the first name on the team sheet, but he is a valued squad member at Palace, and he has won over plenty of fans with his performances this season,” Zaha stated in a special interaction with fans on Twitter.

“As Roy Hodgson noted in recent weeks, he has been a big miss when he has been out injured, as he offers Palace another option, both defensively and going forward. He is clearly liked by Hodgson, and I think he has shown considerable improvement in his time at the club.”

“He is certainly not a bad player, indeed he is a Premier League winner from his time at Leicester, and I think he has shown his worth to the Eagles this season.” He added.

Schlupp made 30 EPL appearances this season, scored five goals and provided two assists.
