Big clubs would be making a ´mistake´ signing Bolasie

SoccerNews in English Premier League 22 May 2015


Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says the Premier League’s top clubs would be making a “mistake” by signing winger Yannick Bolasie.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park following a string of impresive displays for Pardew’s men.

And, referencing Bolasie’s performance in a 3-1 win at Liverpool last weekend, Pardew says he is not surprised by the speculation.

“I don’t think there’s many players who get clapped off at Anfield for a performance where he disrupted a team as good as them,” said Pardew. “He needs to find the end product. He’ll work on that hard next year.

“We might have more of a problem at the end of next year if he starts really banging the net.

“That’s really been the thorn in his side, actual goals.

“This season I think it would probably be a mistake for a top club to get him. I don’t think he’s ready.

“He will be maybe in a year or so when he’s got that final hurdle. Then there’ll hopefully be no stopping him.

“He’s a fantastic boy, a fantastic talent, I love him to bits. 

“I call him my magic man and hopefully he can give us a bit of magic on Sunday [at home to Swansea City].”

Asked whether Bolasie should learn from the experience of Wilfried Zaha, who had an unsuccessful spell at Manchester United before returning to Selhurst Park, Pardew added: “Wilf’s ambition should be to go back to a big club, he just went too early.”
