Wilfried Zaha vows to prove himself at Manchester United

Manchester United’s latest signing Wilfried Zaha has vowed that he will prove himself at the club when he finally puts on the red shirt in the summer.

Zaha is currently on loan at Crystal Palace as they try and gain promotion from the Championship.

Zaha told the Daily Mail that he hopes to justify the £15million fee that United paid.

He said:

“It means a lot to me because, for all the good stuff I hear about me, people saying I’m a good player, there are many that say I’m overrated.

“So this is a great chance for me to show what I’m all about and why I have got to where I am now.

“It will be more practice for me this summer for when I go into pre-season training with Manchester United.

“It’s a chance for me to better myself in different ways and to go out and prove myself on a big stage.

“I’m not sure I will ever get used to it. I’m going to have to try and get used to it and go and play my own game.”

“I do feel the pressure and the hardest thing about being a footballer is to cope with it.

“I just get my head down and tell myself I’m there for a reason. Every time I go on the pitch I have to prove myself.

“It has been a dream being involved in the international set-up. I wanted to push on from just club football but being part of the whole set-up is incredible.”

The forward, who has been playing on the wing for Crystal Palace but as a striker for England, admitted that he looks up to Gareth Bale.

“I have played out on the wing for Palace, but I used to play up top for the youth team. I’ve enjoyed it really. Gareth Bale has been ridiculous this season so if I could play anything like him I’d be very happy.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
