Former Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has opened up about his struggles to adapt to the English Premier League so far.

The Frenchman made the move from Ange Postecoglou's side to Crystal Palace right at the end of last summer's transfer window.

Despite a quick-fire debut at Selhurst Park, in which he scored twice, the 24-year-old has found it difficult to hold down a regular starting place.

Now the former Paris Saint-Germain youth academy graduate has been speaking about the differences between football north and south of the border.

"It was a good season, [but] it’s not easy to come from Scotland and play in England because it’s the best league in the world," he told London News.

"But the team helped me to adapt very well, and I’m looking forward to this season.

"Scotland is very different – everything is different. The technique, the intensity [of the league], the [style] of the teams that we play against – it was very different."

Even though he only netted six times for Patrick Viera's side last season, Edouard feels he is in a good place to make a bigger impact in England this year.

There are quality players in front of the forward at the club. However, he remains optimistic about his chances. 

He continued: "It’s important to have some competition in the team, and Mateta is a good player and a good striker, so we’ll see. I need to work hard this week.

“It was a good pre-season – we worked very hard and want to be ready for the first game.”
