Jairo Riedewald made his debut In a Crystal Palace shirt for the draw in France against FC Metz and the game proved a useful workout for the defender.
“The game was played in warm conditions but I was pleased with how it went from a personal point of view and after doing some training with the squad this week it was good to play some game time.
“The manager had told me before the game that I was going to be playing one half of the game which is important as I build up my fitness before the season gets underway.”
The famous atmosphere that is created in SE25 is something that is known throughout football so it’s no surprise that Jairo has already heard about it. He is now looking forward to being part of it in the pre-season friendly against Schalke on 5th August.
“I have heard good things about the atmosphere that is created at Selhurst Park and I am looking forward to seeing my new home stadium and hopefully next weekend will get the chance to play there in front of the Palace fans.”
