Orlando Trustfull joins Crystal Palace backroom team

Orlando Trustfull has joined Frank de Boer's backroom team at Crystal Palace.

The Dutchman, who played for Sheffield Wednesday in the 1996/97 season, has worked with de Boer previously at Ajax. He has already begun his work at Palace's training ground in Beckenham.

Speaking to Palace's website, he said: "I spoke to Frank last season and the season before that so I knew where I was always going to end up before he started with Crystal Palace.

"We've known each other since we were boys aged 12 to 13, and we started working with each other when we were with Ajax's youth team.

"We shared ideas over the years and then we knew we could work together really well.

"I think we have a good squad with quality players and we want to make an impression with them, and I think we have a good chance of doing so."
