Jeffrey Schlup hails Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira for rise in form

Crystal Palace attacker Jeffrey Schlupp has praised manager Patrick Vieira, saying he is enjoying life under the former France midfielder.

Schlupp has been one of Palace’s most consistent players this season, appearing in 31 league games and contributing four goals and two assists.

The 29-year-old, who scored against Aston Villa over the weekend, returned to action for the Eagles in Thursday’s 3-2 loss to Everton.

“He’s (Patrick Vieira) definitely got to understand everyone personally,” Schlupp said as quoted by club’s official website. “He understood everyone’s strengths and weaknesses to work on. I think that’s the sign of a good manager.

“You’ve got to understand your players really quickly in such a short space of time. It’s his first year. He’ll only get more and more understanding of the players and unlock more from the boys.”

He added, “It’s a mentality shift. I’m sure everyone goes into every game trying to win it, but I think teams are really starting to not like playing against us. Coming to Selhurst Park, especially with the backing that the crowd gives us, is unbelievable.”

“We definitely don’t want to make it a nice place to come, so I think we’ve done that and scared some opposition coming to us.”

Schlupp has four goals and one assist in 31 games this season.
