Crystal Palace first-team players always share their pearls of wisdom to young fans on how to improve aspects of their game and be better players in the future.
In this edition of the official Palace programme, the Eagles spoke to Senegal international Cheikhou Kouyaté on what he would say to young players looking to follow in his footsteps one day.
“Firstly, you need to listen when you’re younger: to your manager, coaches and older players. However, what I found is that you must trust yourself and your instincts," he said.
"Because sometimes you have an idea but the senior players might be saying something different but there comes a time where you must just believe in yourself.
“This is very, very important. Because it is not easy to trust yourself but no one knows better than you what is best for you.”
