Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise gives ‘greatest interview of all time’ after late winner

Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise gives what has been hailed as the ‘greatest interview of all time’ after a late winner at West Ham on Sunday.

The 20-year-old beat Lukasz Fabianski thanks to a huge deflection after Wilfried Zaha cancelled out Said Benrahma’s opening goal at the London Stadium.

Having been picked for media duties after bagging all three points for Patrick Vieira’s side, the France youth international wasn’t exactly in a talkative mood.

Having been asked to describe his goal, Olise said: “The goal? I think Wilf passed me the ball. Shot. Scored.”

Following on, when questioned what the feeling was like when the ball hit the back of the net, he revealed: “It was a good feeling.”

And finally saying when asked if he thought Palace deserved the victory overall: “Yeah.”

In response, a fan said: “The best ‘it’s not that deep’ interview ever from Olise.”

This isn’t the first time the Palace player has produced reaction that he might desire from an interview, as he did when being crowned the club’s player of the month back in February.

He said at the time: “I just want to thank the fans for voting for me – I appreciate it.”

On the pitch, Olise grabbed his first goal of the Premier League campaign to claim victory over West Ham and guide the Eagles up to 10th in the table after 13 games played.

Said Benrahma had put West Ham ahead before Wilfried Zaha levelled it up.

David Moyes speaking to Sky Sports: “It’s difficult to explain that one. We scored a goal when we didn’t deserve to score one but then we gave them a goal which was all our doing. Then it looked like we’d get the winner but they broke and scored. We didn’t play well enough and Palace were the better side. Did they deserve to win? Maybe so due to the way they played – but the goals we gave away were terrible.”

Patrick Vieira speaking to Sky Sports: “I think we were the better team over the 90 minutes. We didn’t create much in the first half as they were really deep and we couldn’t find players in between the lines. But we had the strength and calmness to come back. We’ve had some tough games away from home and our performances have been positive but today was really good, we deserved it.”
