Crystal Palace Plotting A Move For 24 Y/O International Striker: Why He Should Turn It Down!

Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for Ostersunds’ forward Saman Ghoddos. The 24-year-old Iranian born striker previously played for Sweden but now represents Iran in national colours. He has the ability to play as a striker, a winger or an attacking midfielder.

He impressed in his performance against Arsenal in their round of 32 tie in the Arsenal and it is believed that he has drawn the attention of several Premier League clubs like West Ham United, West Brom, Southampton and Brighton and Hove. One other club who is also interested in him is Crystal Palace.

So it would be a tough place for Saman Ghoddos to crack if he does make the move. Moreover, it is never simple for a striker to cut it out a new club.

The game of football at the professional level requires not only players with quick feet but with a sharp mind as well. As the level of the game goes higher, technical skills are overtaken by the ability of a player to be mentally quick. The professional game is played at the highest level and every professional is more or less gifted with abundance in terms of technicality and ball skills. The great players stand out from the regular ones on one basis, their use of the brain.

The game is decided in a split second and players are judged on the few moments they get on the ball. The game is even more difficult for the strikers and goalkeepers who unlike the midfielders see lesser of the ball but the magnitude of their little time is significantly more than the playmakers and tacklers in the midfield.

For a striker, the game is more in the mind than anything. A good striker is never short on confidence. Their mental strength has to be on point every single time they step on the pitch, whether it be once in a month or for ninety minutes every time their team plays a match. Palace already have Sorloth and Christian Benteke in attack and hence Ghoddos will be expected to be a backup.

It is therefore difficult for strikers called upon from the bench to make an impact as chances are harder to come by and the stakes are always high. The stories of back up strikers are the ones which go wrong most often and their careers are never judged by correct parameters. Hence, Ghoddos must be aware of the pitfalls if he does opt to go to Palace.
