Wilfried Zaha has taken to Twitter once again to defend himself, this time after pictures of him smoking a shisha pipe circulated.
The 21-year-old celebrated his 21st birthday last weekend with friends, in all likelihood with the permission of David Moyes, and the photos made it look like Zaha had pulled a Jack Wilshere by being caught smoking.
However, Zaha insists that the shisha pipe was an electric one which carries no harm at all to your health.
He said: “All this hype on twitter about me smoking is incorrect.
“Yes it was a shisha stick but not a nicotine version.”
This isn’t the first time that Zaha has had to take to Twitter to make sure that rumours don’t tarnish his career at Manchester United before it started.
He had to respond quickly to wild rumours that the reason he wasn’t getting any game time was because he bedded David Moyes’ daughter, a rumour he immediately labelled childish.
Zaha hasn’t got off to the best of starts at United so far but he is working to get given his opportunities and that is all he can continue to do. Attempts to tarnish his image aren’t going to help him by any means.
