Crystal Palace Sign Arsenal Striker Marouane Chamakh On One Year Deal: Nightly Soccer Report

marouane chamakh Crystal Palace Sign Arsenal Striker Marouane Chamakh On One Year Deal: Nightly Soccer Report

Crystal Palace have signed Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh on a one-year deal.

While Chamakh has been the butt of jokes for a couple of years since joining Arsenal in 2010, this will be a wonderful opportunity at Crystal Palace to prove the doubters wrong in a team where he should have a regular starting spot if his performances are positive.

When the Moroccan international joined the Gunners, he looked bright in the early matches, but quickly lost his confidence and was never the same player again for Arsenal. With a new lease of life at Selhurst Park, this is exactly the type of club and opportunity where he can flourish.

    Is it all Friendlies this week and no World Cup Qualifiers ?

  2. Andre says:

    The Northern Ireland vs Russia game is a WCQ, I think it is a make-up. All the others are friendlies.

    Can anyone think of a player who flopped in the Prem as badly as Chamakh, left, then came back with another club and thrived?
