Video: Crystal Palace star Bakary Sako scores screamer in training, responds to club on Twitter

The Malian attacker has impressed since arriving from Wolves on a free transfer this summer.

This summer Crystal Palace won the battle to sign Mali attacker Bakary Sako from Wolves on a free transfer.

The winger had been wanted by a long line of clubs in the Premier League, with good reason.

The attacker has been one of the Championship’s best players last season and has been in top form for Wolves for a couple of seasons.

Palace however was the perfect fit for the player. His pace and power going forward fits in perfectly with the philosophy of Alan Pardew and he has appeared to be a hit early on in his Palace career.

He has also been hitting the odd wonder goal in training. The official Crystal Palace Twitter account sent out this video yesterday, highlighting a great long range strike scored by Sako in training yesterday:

The player even caught wind of it and replied to the message through his own Twitter account:

Sako has certainly had a great start to his career at Palace and looks to be winning the fans over already with his blend of hard work and raw ability.

With Yannick Bolasie, Jason Puncheon and Wilfried Zaha all backing him up it is easy to see why Palace are so feared this season.
