A lot of Crystal Palace fans have been quick to praise Wilfried Zaha after the club posted a tweet highlighting that it has been ten years since he made his debut for the club.
The Ivorian made his first appearance for the Eagles as a substitute at the age of 17, coming on in a 2-1 defeat to Cardiff, per Crystal Palace. He then scored on his full debut in a 3-2 victory against Leicester City.
Since then the winger has featured 353 times for the South London outfit either side of a brief spell at Manchester United, scoring 56 goals and assisting 70 times, per Transfermarkt.
Fans adore the player, the skill and attacking intent which he brings to the side is something that will be hard to replace if he ever leaves the club. This season, he has managed on average an impressive 4.7 dribbles, 1.5 shots and 1 key pass per game and is fouled 3.2 times per game, via WhoScored.
Several supporters have been waxing lyrical about Zaha following the club’s post, with one even describing him as the ‘GOAT‘ (Greatest Of All Time). Here is what some had to say following the tweet…
