Why I Flopped at Manchester United- Zaha

2 Min Read

Wilfried Zaha is the talk of London now with his scintillating performances for Crystal Palace drawing comparisons with some of the very best in the game.

Zaha was always talented and many even forget that he played for Manchester United for a bit– it didn’t end well

He ended up with only 2 games and was soon shipped off to Cardiff before finally going to Crystal Palace.

The 25-year-old seems to have matured and is now knocking in the goals for Palace and threatening to enter into the upper echelon of football.

Reflecting on why he flopped at the theatre of dreams, Zaha said: “It’s hard to take. Obviously, getting to United isn’t easy, so not being given a chance is hard to take,”

“I don’t regret anything because it made me stronger. I feel as though I can deal with anything now.

“I went through so much with United. I was dealing with this at 19; living in Manchester by myself, nowhere near anyone else, because the club had a hold over where I lived.

“They hadn’t given me a car, like every other player [had]. Nothing. I’m living in this hell by myself, away from my family, and I thought, “If this doesn’t make me stronger, what will?”

The winger will square off against Newcastle on the weekend and he’ll be hoping for another positive result.
