New Crystal Palace player, Eberechi Eze has come out to hail club forward, Wilfried Zaha.
This is coming after both players featured in the clash vs Charlton Athletic in a pre-season friendly.
According to him, Zaha is an amazing player and playing alongside him will surely help his career because of his quality.
Eze added that he is fit and he is pleased for the pre season matches since they will sharpen him up.
His words, “It was good,”
“[I] enjoyed it. Linking with the attacking players was fun, it was good for me to get my fitness up and it’s just been a good performance.”
“[Wilfried Zaha is] an amazing player. It’s good to play with guys like him and guys of his quality, because they see things others don’t see and it makes life a lot easier for yourself.”
“[Fitness] is good. I’ve obviously been training with QPR, doing a bit. But games like this are what I need to top me up,”
“I know that [roaming] is what the manager wants me to do, he wants me to link-up and feel free to go where I want to go and where I feel comfortable – which is obviously inside. But it gives me a license to be free, which is good.”
Roy Hodgson added, “He was excellent in the first half. It was as if he’s been with us longer than one day and one day’s training,”
“His understanding of the position was very good…It was a very promising debut for the team. I don’t think he did very much wrong at all and, like the other forwards, he got in for plenty of goal chances and shots at goal. We’re looking forward to working with him.”
