Our Crystal Palace fans here in the Transfer Tavern are very nervous at the moment and Steve Mandanda’s latest comments have certainly not helped matters.
The Eagles have really struggled this season and our landlord cannot see a way out for them in terms of the relegation fight unless they can find a new way of playing.
Their squad looks bereft of confidence and it appears Mandanda, for instance, wants out.
“Quite simply: everyone knows the attachment I have for Marseille.
“It would be a great pleasure to return, because my feeling for the club is enormous.”
Certainly not words of a player that is ready to roll his sleeves up and dig in in a relegation fight, then.
Mandanda did initially impress for Palace at the start of this season, too, but he has been injured for some time and these latest comments will surely not do him any favours with a desperate Eagles fan-base.
Thoughts, Palace fans? Let us know below!
