New Manchester United signing Wilfried Zaha insists he remains focused on the task at hand as he aims to guide Crystal Palace out of the Championship and into the Premier League. The talented winger completed a £17 million move to Old Trafford last week, but in typical Sir Alex Ferguson fashion for youngsters who aren’t yet ready he immediately loaned the English youth international back to Crystal Palace to continue his first team development.
“I’m glad I’m back on loan as I didn’t want to leave the job unfinished,” Zaha told reporters according to Goal.com. “Being with the team is like a family.
“I just want to get back to doing what I do best and get us back to the Prem.
“That’s what I’ve got my mind set on.”
Zaha was much sought-after in this month’s transfer window, with Arsenal known suitors. United, however, were quickest to complete a deal, and secured the transfer window with a week to spare in this month’s window.
Zaha’s Palace side currently lie in fifth place in the Championship table, in a prime position to qualify for the playoffs. The Eagles, however, are just two points behind second placed Leicester City for an automatic promotion spot, in a season that is one of the closest ever in England’s second tier.
United, meanwhile, are in firm control at the top of the Premier League table, and could be seven points ahead of local rivals Manchester City with a win over Southampton later today. City were disappointed to drop two points against a struggling QPR side in last night’s Premier League action, once again opening the door for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side to open up a gap.
