Crystal Palace: Fans react to Jack Butland’s shirt number

Crystal Palace: Fans react to Jack Butland’s shirt number - Crystal Palace News

New Crystal Palace signing Jack Butland has made the decision on what shirt number he is going to wear and a lot of the fan base have taken to Twitter in response.

The 27 year-old goalkeeper arrived from Stoke City on deadline day – he has featured for England nine times. He also has Premier League experience and has made 275 appearances in all competitions in his career, per Transfermarkt.

He hasΒ not featured for the Potters this seasonΒ though and is now seen simply as cover at the bet365 Stadium. Hopefully he may then get a new lease of like under Roy Hodgson, whilst the South London side need cover for Vicente Guaita as Wayne Hennessey is injured. Therefore, the transfer made sense for all parties.

The club tweeted out that he is going to wear the number one shirt, and this has not been picked since club legend Julian Speroni retired.

The Argentinian was at the club for around 15 years, per Transfermarkt. He made 403 appearances for the club, keeping 111 clean sheets. As a result, Butland picking this number could add some pressure. However, it shows the great mentality he has by picking the shirt.

Here is how fans are reacting to this news around Butland:
