Crystal Palace’s Joachim Andersen Shares Potential Celebration Plan for Mateta’s Goal

2 min read

Crystal Palace’s defender Joachim Andersen has hinted at a unique celebration plan for the entire team if Jean-Philippe Mateta scores again in Saturday’s match against Wolves.

Mateta has been in scintillating form under manager Oliver Glasner, scoring nine goals in 11 Premier League appearances, marking a remarkable run since Glasner took over from Roy Hodgson.

The Frenchman’s recent goal against Manchester United at Selhurst Park made history as no player in Crystal Palace’s past had scored in six consecutive Premier League home games. Andersen revealed a potential celebration plan during the club’s end-of-season awards evening, suggesting that if Mateta scores against Wolves, the entire team might copy his gesture of tucking in their shirts for the final game against Aston Villa.

Responding to the idea proposed on stage, Andersen remarked, “Maybe we should do that.” With Mateta’s impressive scoring streak, the prospect of such a celebration seems plausible.

Mateta has previously found the net at Molineux during the 2021/22 campaign under Patrick Vieira. With Wolves experiencing a dip in form, having secured only one win in their last nine games, Crystal Palace sees Saturday’s fixture as an opportunity for another successful outing.

The team’s morale has significantly improved under Glasner’s tenure, contrasting the apathy that prevailed among fans earlier in the season. Andersen himself experienced a tense relationship with fans following a heavy defeat to Arsenal in January. However, the atmosphere around Selhurst Park has shifted positively, with unity and team spirit evident among players and supporters alike.

Glasner’s influence in fostering camaraderie within the squad bodes well for Crystal Palace’s future, sparking excitement among fans about the team’s potential progress after a full pre-season under the Austrian manager.
