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.
