Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson showered laudatory praises on versatile Ghana defender Jeffrey Schlupp ahead of his side’s Premier League game against Liverpool on Saturday.
Schlupp has been outstanding for the Eagles as he continues to impressively support the team defensively and offensively.
Last week, the Black Stars left-back cum winger scored the important equalizer as Palace league leaders Tottenham.
“I don’t know about the most versatile [player I’ve managed] but he’s up there [among the best], of course,” Hodgson told pressmen.
“We’ve never really seen him as an out and out defender. I know he had a couple of spells before I came as a full-back and even once or twice during my time as a full-back.
“But we’ve never thought of him long term as a defender. We regard him as an attacking player which means he plays across the midfield, which he’s more than capable of doing.
“At the moment he’s playing on the right side and able to cut in on his left foot because we want [Eberechi] Eze to do the same thing on the other side but I could quite easily switch those two over. I don’t think it would make a vast difference to our game.”
