It took him just 28 seconds to net after coming on against Tottenham Hotspur, and he didn’t need long to bag a second, either.
Edouard took to the pitch with urgency, intent and drive; qualities every club wants in a newly-signed forward.

They set him a range of tasks to complete within 28 seconds, including: tie a tie, peel a potato, and make our presenter laugh. In French.
And, it turns out, Odsonne Edouard is not a fast-moving man. At least not off the pitch.
