Moyes: Zaha will get chances

Manchester United boss David Moyes says Wilfried Zaha will get a

chance to shine at Old Trafford this season after impressing on his

pre-season debut in Thailand.

Zaha played the second half of United’s 1-0 defeat by the Singha

All Stars in Bangkok, a result Moyes was not too bothered about

given the relative lack of experience on display.

There had been speculation that the 20-year-old would return to

Crystal Palace on loan this season, but Moyes gave a large hint

that would not be the case.

“Wilfried did well,” said Moyes. “He gave us a little bit of

something different.

“We have brought him here to give him a chance. It is the first

time I have worked with him and had a chance to see him up


“He will certainly be part of the squad and we will see where we

can fit him in as often as we can.”

Zaha came closest to getting United level when he curled a shot

against the post but in the end they could find no response to

Teeratep Winothai’s 50th-minute goal.

“It wasn’t a brilliant result but this wasn’t one we desperately

needed to win,” added Moyes. “It is one we need to get prepared to

win games from.

“(Adnan Januzaj) was a plus for us. He played well. It is always

good when you give a young player a chance and he shows up. He did

that tonight.

“The more he plays like that, the more opportunities he is

likely to get.”
