Many Crystal Palace fans have been angered on Twitter after the club issued a behind-the-scenes update from Christian Benteke, who is currently on international duty with Belgium at Euro 2020 [cpfc.co.uk].
Sparsely featuring for the quarter-finalists, the 30-year-old has appeared for just six minutes across the duration of the tournament so far [UEFA].
In an interview posted on the Eagles’ website, Benteke relays his experiences of the competition alongside how the players pass the time outside of training in a COVID-19 environment [cpfc.co.uk].
Will Crystal Palace appoint a manager before pre-season?
Although it is nice to see major players from the club participating on the international stage, there is a feeling that Palace should be more occupied with other matters such as the pressing necessity to bring in a new manager ahead of pre-season. Lucien Favre’s rejection of the job last week leaves the club continuing to search for Roy Hodgson’s successor several weeks after the latter announced his departure.
In light of the Benteke feature, many Eagles diehards took to Twitter to vent their frustration at the club’s Twitter post.
Crystal Palace fans react:
Replying to the Eagles’ Twitter account, here is how some fans reacted:
“Amazon Prime, no manager and a toxic atmosphere We caught up with Palace fans during #EURO2020″
