Jeffrey Schlupp reveals he joined Crystal Palace because of Allardyce

Jeffrey Schlupp says he joined Crystal Palace because of manager Sam Allardyce.

Schlupp said the chance of playing under Allardyce was key to his switch from Leicester City as he praised the former England manager for his meticulous planning.

"Everyone was aware of what he achieved before he joined and was a key reason for me coming here," Schlupp told the club website.

"He sends us out onto the pitch with a game plan that we have been working on in training and our results prove that it is working.

"We do a lot out on the training pitch regarding our shape and he works with us as a defensive group and we have been doing a lot of work on that."
