Former Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha has revealed that he has left his miserable time at the club in the past.
Zaha was Sir Alex Ferguson’s final signing in 2013 and arrived from Crystal Palace with all the potential in the world, however, only made four appearances under Ferguson’s successor David Moyes throughout the 2013-14 season.
Like Moyes, the Ivory Coast international left Old Trafford after just one season and returned to Selhurst Park where he has evolved into one of the Premier League’s most exciting wingers, but has since denied rumours that there’s still bad blood between him and United.
Speaking at the Best of Africa awards after being named in the Team of the Year, Zaha said: “There was loads of talk – loads of people saying I’ve got no end-product – and that just spurred me on to be a better player.
“During the times when I wasn’t playing at Man United, everyone was trying to come up with their own reasons why I’m not playing; I’ve got a bad attitude, this, that. So, I just get on with my football.
He finished by admitting: “To be honest I used to care a lot about [the criticism], but I don’t care so much [now].”
Zaha signed a new bumper five-year contract with Palace at the start of the season, but could be targeted this summer after being the shining light in a suffering team for the majority of the 2017-18 campaign.
