The last game stained by injury… Tears at the end → I hit the ground in upset
Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha finally shed tears.
Palace won 2-1 in the 2022/23 Premier League round 29 home game against Leicester City held at Selhurst Park Stadium in London메이저사이트, England on the 1st (Korean time).
Palace, who conceded the first goal to Ricardo Ferreira in the 11th minute of the second half, balanced the match with an opponent’s own goal 3 minutes later, and won 3 points with Jean Philippe Mateta’s come-from-behind goal in the second half of extra time.
Palace rose to 12th place with 7 wins, 9 draws and 13 losses, 30 points, widening the gap from the relegation zone to 5 points.
There was a player who couldn’t smile despite the team’s victory that day. The contract with Palace is terminated at the end of this season.
Jaha, who started as a left-sided striker, grabbed the ball just before the end of the first half and tried to break through, but suddenly grabbed the inside of the groin and collapsed.
Did he feel it was a serious injury? Jaha, as if expecting a long-term absence, finally showed tears and hit the ground with his hand.
Jaha, who was substituted out immediately after his injury, walked out on his own without medical help, but he could not hide his intense emotions.
After the game, The Sun reported, “Jaha played what could be her last match at Palace, shedding tears due to an injury.”
Palace manager Roy Hodgson also confirmed that Zaha’s injury could be serious.
According to the media, Hodgson said, “It’s definitely a worrying situation. I don’t know. If you injure a muscle, you may need a long recovery period. Of course, if you’re lucky, it might not be that long, but now you have to trust the medical team and wait.”
“Once you have to look at how bad things are, that’s the first thing you do,” he added.
He is a living legend who has played for Palace since Jaha’s youth. He briefly played for Manchester United in 2013 and made his name known to domestic fans as well. He failed to occupy his main position at Manchester United and left on loan to Palace and Cadiz City, etc., and returned to Palace in 2015 and has been active so far.
After 13 seasons at Palace alone, he will leave the team after his contract expires this summer, unless there is a renewal contract.
