Sells Pro Training speaks with Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni
Julian started out in his homeland with Club Atletico Platense in 2000, but the following year moved to Scottish club Dundee, where he soon became a cult hero under boss Ivan Bonetti.
He picked up a Scottish Cup runners-up medal in 2003, follow a narrow 1-0 defeat against Rangers, before heading south to Premier League new boys Crystal Palace, for £500,000 the following year.
Julian made his top-flight debut against Norwich City that August but was utilised as a back-up to Gabor Kiraly before taking the shirt on a permanent basis in 2007.
The Argentine then flourished, winning four consecutive Player of the Year titles – the first player to achieve the feat in the club’s history.
He was undoubtedly one of the star keepers in the Premier League in 2013-14 and his form was a major reason why the Eagles maintained their top-flight status under Tony Pulis.
Speroni had another consistent Premier League campaign in 2014/15 and ended the campaign with a successful testimonial game against former club Dundee.
He equalled the club’s goalkeeper appearance record when he made his 388th appearance against Southampton towards the end of the 2015/16 season and has now made over 500 career appearances.
Julian is a former Argentina U21 international.
