Two-goal Mounie helps Huddersfield to shock win at Palace

The 35-year-old defender's role in Wagner's coaching set-up is yet to be defined, but the German believes he will prove a valuable addition.

Crystal Palace have confirmed on their official website that they will be without two first-team players as they play host to Premier League new boys Huddersfield Town on Saturday, two men are doubtful but three new players could debut at Selhurst Park.

He ends his playing career having helped Town to promotion via the Championship play-off final against Reading at Wembley.

Crystal Palace struggled to deal with Huddersfield's intensity throughout the encounter and David Wagner will be hoping his side can build on this excellent start to the season in the Terriers upcoming fixtures.

Hudson signed a new three-year contract at Huddersfield in April 2016 with a move to the coaching staff in mind. But despite such "carousels" the team with 41 points in the asset finished 14 positions in the Premier League.

"He is a huge influence in our dressing room, a total professional with a winning mentality, and that was why securing his future to Huddersfield was so important".

The Eagles earned themselves safety from relegation following an industrious display under former coach Sam Allardyce, leaving new manager De Boer with the opportunity to build on the club's status in the top flight of English football.

"We want to make a solid club and if we achieve that, I'm as happy as when I lifted a trophy".
