Holloway backs Zaha at United

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has backed Wilfried Zaha to be a success with Manchester United.

Zaha signed for United in January but returned to Selhurst Park for the remainder of the season, helping Palace secure their spot in the Championship play-offs where according to, they are favourites for victory.

“Wilf’s talents will win games in the top flight and he will help Manchester United to win matches with their new manager next season,” Holloway said. “Palace are a very good team when Wilf is in it, but without the other players he wouldn’t look half as good.

“We feel like we are losing a member of our family because Wilf is etched so much into this club,” he continued. “But I wouldn’t have been doing Palace any favours if we’d stopped him from joining a club like Manchester United. How would he have been feeling if we’d been selfish and denied him that opportunity? What would he have produced for us after that? But now I think we will see him pay us back against Watford at Wembley because I know how well he can play in a situation like this.”
