Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway is full of praise for Marouane Chamakh.

The former Arsenal striker is already off the mark for his new club.

"Marouane got five or six goals in a row in the Champions League - does that make him a bad player overnight with Robin Van Persie sat there? All I can say is I really like the boy. You saw his willingness to chase, to work and run. It's very refreshing that these lads who have been to the top of the game still want to come and work hard. He's a breath of fresh air," said Holloway.
