Zaha has been damaged by Manchester United - Pardew

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew believes Wilfried Zaha has been "damaged" following his time at Manchester United.

The 22-year-old was Sir Alex Ferguson’s final signing as United manager but barely featured under David Moyes, making just three first-team appearances before being sent out on loan to Cardiff City.

Zaha rejoined Palace at the start of the campaign, initially on loan before making the move permanent in February, but Pardew feels the player is still suffering from a lack of confidence after his Old Trafford spell.

The story is too old to be commented.
