Former centre-half John Lacy has heaped praise on Vlad Chiriches.

Our Romanian defender returned to action against West Ham United on Wednesday, having been sidelined for a couple of games with a knee problem.

And ex-player John, who played 132 times in our colours between 1978 and 1983, says he’s a big fan of the former Steuau Bucharest man.

“He looks a very good player and it would be great if we could win a couple of cups with him in the team,” said John, who is a regular for our Legends team.

“I think it’s important to get a defensive partnership that’s going to play regularly.

“For your goalkeeper and your two centre-halves to have a good relationship is very important for the defensive side of the team

“When I played it was a different type of football. The goalkeepers kicked the ball out of their hands as far as they could down the pitch, there was a lot more heading of the ball than there is today.

“Vlad looks very composed, positionally he looks very good and he looks very comfortable on the ball.”
