Many fans of Crystal Palace have been reacting to the club’s post on Twitter which shared footage of former Eagles winger Yannick Bolasie in action for the south Londoners.
In the footage, Bolasie can be seen battling to get around Liverpool centre-back, Dejan Lovren, when the Palace winger suddenly swipes his hand along the ground before knocking the ball past the defender.
In his time at Palace, the 31-year-old scored 13 goals and provided 30 assists over his 144 appearances, with the winger becoming a fan favourite at Selhurst Park for “bamboozling defenders with his trickery,” such as his skinning of Lovren.
After Crystal Palace shared the clip of Bolasie on Twitter, plenty of fans flocked to have their say on the winger, with many reminiscing about how entertaining the DR Congo international was to watch for the Eagles, while others simply shared their awe at the disrespect he appeared to show the then-Liverpool defender in what one dubbed “joyful” footage.
Would you take Bolasie back at Palace?
So, what exactly did these Crystal Palace fans have to say in reaction to the footage of Yannick Bolasie?
“Back when he had pace. Also, is Dejan Lovren still a thing?”
“Miss him but don’t want him back, we had him at his peak which was joyful to watch.”
“Miss Yannick running down the wing.”
“Miss you so much Yannick.”
“I mean the disrespect is just incredible.”
“Had him on toast.”
“One of the most entertaining players we’ve ever had.”
