Crystal Palace fans on Twitter are feeling the pain of Julian Speroni’s departure, and have expressed their sadness after watching a video of the club legend’s last ever training session with his teammates.
It was announced last week that the Argentinian glovesman would be departing Selhurst Park after 15 years in SE25, following a record-breaking spell with the Eagles that will live long in the memory of the club’s fanbase.
Is the FA Cup distracting Crystal Palace fans from their EPL issues? Playmaker FC’s Sam thinks so in the video below…
Speroni has also kept a club-record 112 clean sheets, and has racked up the most appearances of any goalkeeper since the formation of the south London outfit.
The former Dundee man is regarded as a hero by Palace fans for his loyalty, commitment and his love for the club in general, and his presence around the place will be sorely missed.
After seeing the video of his final training session, plenty of the south London club’s supporters expressed their sadness on Twitter…
That made me cry. Think I need a large supply of tissues for tomorrow lol ❤?

Difficult to put in to words what Speroni has meant to Palace.
Played in an era we were dire, overlooked for some of the worst players we've ever signed & just carried on quietly through it all to drag us forward and become a #cpfc legend as one of our best ever keepers.

I remember as a 14 year old boy, watching from the stand a nervous Argentinean in goal for the first time. Little did I know 15 years later he'd still be with us. Julian Speroni's last game for #CPFC today.
I'm not crying, you are. Better take a pack of tissues just in case. pic.twitter.com/AutV8nzixY
