Crystal Palace fans cannot contain their excitement after the club announced that midfielder Jairo Riedewald has signed a new contract with the South London side.
The Dutch midfielder signing for the club is arguably the only good thing to come from Frank de Boer’s short reign in charge of the South London side, although it hasn’t been the easiest journey for the 24-year-old as he has only made 57 appearances since his arrival in 2017.
His quality is starting to show now though, nearly four years after his arrival. Fans have seen how good he is in multiple positions as he picked up a Player of the Month award last season for his performances at left-back and also earlier this season for his performances in central midfield.
With the midfielder still at such a young age, he has the potential to become an even better player, and it is easy to see why fans are so excited to see that the club have sorted him out with a shiny new contract.
Here is how Palace fans reacted to the news:
“Blinder! Well done Parish & Doog.”
“Get in there the boyyyyy”
“BEST NEWS EVER!”
“Fantastic news. This guy can be huge for us, superb composure on the ball, ability to break up play and control the middle of the park. Great defensive awareness and ability to pick the right pass forward. Genuinely believe he could be captain one day if given proper opportunity.”
“Get in. Stay forever. 2 big contracts done in the last week.”
