Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to Roy Hodgson’s comments on defenders Mamadou Sakho and James Tomkins on social media.
Hodgson was talking to the media ahead of the Eagles’ trip to Leicester City on Monday and had some ‘good news’ to share.
Who has been your Palace player of the season?
As posted by the club’s official Twitter page, Hodgson said:
“We’ve got a lot of players back which is good news. Mamadou Sakho – even James Tomkins is out there training. So in fact, this is as big a group as we’ve had training for a long time.”
Palace fans react
As to be expected, the return of Sakho and Tomkins had plenty of Palace fans talking on social media, with fans hoping to end the season on a strong note after it looked like it was going to just peter out following the heavy defeats to Tottenham and Chelsea.
This is what some had to say in reply to the club’s Thursday afternoon post, with some hoping to see the pair alongside each other before the end of the current campaign.
“I’m not used to so much good news in one thread! Oh my”
“Are you serious? These players are draining the club. Experienced and overpaid now so get rid of them and reward players that want to play for the club, no meal tickets allowed. We need huge change in the summer or will pay the ultimate consequences…. “
“Need one last game of Tomkins and Sakho if they’re going this season”
“One last dance”
