Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira waxes lyrical about Super Eagles target after first Premier League goal
Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira was quick to sing the praises of Michael Olise after his side's 2-2 draw with Leicester City in a Premier League clash at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon. <br />
The Palace boss pointed out that the Super Eagles target is not yet in tip-top condition as he only recently recovered from injury and was lacking match fitness.
Olise had an impact after coming off the bench, halving the deficit with a left-footed shot that went into the bottom corner after his initial effort had hit Ryan Bertrand.
In approximately 37 minutes of action against the Foxes, the Anglo-French-Nigerian winger did enough to win over the Palace faithful thanks to his brilliant performance.
Speaking to reporters at the post-match press conference, Vieira said on Olise : “I think we are all really excited about his talent, but at the same time, we have to understand it will take time to be a Premier League player.
“He is working really well, working really hard, and he is in a good football club who will support him to develop himself.”It’s just about him keeping working. He’s working in training, he can score goals as he showed today. It is a long season, so he will definitely play some games, but we have to give him time as well to develop himself.
“He had a long injury and he is not at his best yet, but he is improving and he will be a really important player for us.”
Olise scored his first goal in the Premier League after playing for nineteen minutes spread across three games.
