Crystal Palace defender Andersen: Garcia convinced me to leave Lyon

Joachim Andersen has detailed his decision to quit Lyon for Crystal Palace.

The Denmark defender admits a lack of football at OL convinced him to depart for the Eagles.

"I wanted to play every game but he [then Lyon manager Rudi Garcia] changed a lot which I was unhappy with but that is football sometimes," Andersen explained.

"Sometimes we have different ideas and I was really enjoying my time there, it is a fantastic club so I have nothing bad to say about them and it brought me here so I am happy.

"I like to see a project be presented for me and to hopefully play a big role in that building up.

"I'm 25 years of age. I need to play football. I need to learn, improve so that's the only way you improve by playing football and use my strengths as well and that I could see here. I am here to take Palace to a good place hopefully."
