Ghana international, Jordan Ayew has lauded the influence of new Crystal Palace manager, Patrick Vieira on the club.

The former Arsenal and French legendary defender was appointed as the replacement from Roy Hodgson.

While the club are preparing for the 2021/22 season, Ayew has praised the changes in the Eagles' style of play after just one month of Vieira's appointment.

“It’s different, because the gaffer came in and had a different style of play and wanted me to have more control of the game, and asked to create a lot of chances," the Ghana striker said.

“He’s trying to keep me high up the pitch, so I have lots of energy. Obviously, me, Wilf [Zaha], Christian [Benteke], JP [Mateta] and [Jeff] Schluppy are just trying to put in the best conditions for us to make the difference upfront.

“It was a good one for the team because the second-half was not easy. We defended well. There is a lot of positives – the young guys are performing and everything is going to plan.” he added.

Palace will open the season with a home game against Watford.
