Mother Love article It’s a good question, isn’t it?
So, with so many of our footballing heroes having been instrumental in our game’s evolution, we thought it’d be fun to ask a few of our readers which one would they like to be compared to.
The answer, in no particular order, is: Alexandre Lacazette.
“I’ve never been one for a specific player, so I’m sure there are many great players, but Lacazettes is one of my favourites, in my opinion.
He’s always looking to get his feet underneath him, and he’s also incredibly strong. “
When he’s running, it’s just brilliant.
He’s always looking to get his feet underneath him, and he’s also incredibly strong.
He can be an absolutely beast on the ball and I love that.”
Lacazette is a really important player for the club, as he has an immense influence on everything we do on and off the pitch.
We know he’s a huge fan of the club and the fans, so it’s a great opportunity for him to be a part of the team.
He’s an outstanding talent, who’s scored two goals for us, has got a great eye for goal, he’s very patient and has a great attitude. “
Lacazoette has played every minute of every game, so he’s been part of our first-team squad,” said Palace boss Alan Pardew.
Lacozettes first goal for Crystal Palace was against Newcastle United in February, which proved to be the first of many goals that helped Palace secure their Premier League status. “
He’s a very talented player, but we’ve been very impressed with what he’s done at Palace, and I’d like to thank him for that.”
Lacozettes first goal for Crystal Palace was against Newcastle United in February, which proved to be the first of many goals that helped Palace secure their Premier League status.
It also came just one month after he scored the winner against Manchester City in the FA Cup final, scoring a brace to seal his place in the club’s history books.
A quick review of Lacazé’s career reveals he’s won trophies for Lyon, Lyon-based FC Basel, Lille and Barcelona, but it was his time at Palace that really catapulted him to stardom.
Lacosé scored 19 goals for the Magpies in all competitions, before he moved to Crystal Palace for £9m in January 2019.
He would go on to make 53 appearances for the Eagles, netting 14 goals, before departing for the Gunners.
The 25-year-old has scored in three successive Premier League campaigns for the north London club, and will be looking to repeat that form this season.
Crystal Palace fans will be hoping that the new manager will make Lacazés job easier with the likes of Jack Rodwell and Jordan Henderson still in the side.
