Premier League legend, Thierry Henry, has heaped more criticism on Crystal Palace forward Jordan Ayew after his shocking miss in Monday night’s game against Brighton.
Ayew had a glorious chance to make it 2-0 to Palace but shot wide – a chance that proved costly as Brighton equalized late on.
Henry, who scored 175 Premier League goals during his time, believes the Ghana international should’ve squared the ball to Benteke or better still, just scored.
“That’s the better option,” said the former Arsenal and French international.
“You score, I come and celebrate with you – we do some somersault or whatever you want, we slide on our knees.
“If you don’t score, I would have killed you. Give me the ball….that is a sure goal.
“In that position, I’m thinking Benteke. This is where, in the Premier League, that’s a 2-0. Yes, he could have scored. But what about this [passing to Benteke], that’s 2-0 and we’re not talking anymore.”
Ayew has managed just one league goal for Palace since the start of the 2020/2021 season, after finishing as the club’s top scorer in the 2019/2020 campaign.
