Despite the fact that David Moyes’ system and chosen players didn’t work, with United finishing a woeful 7th in the table after winning the league the season before, Wilf Zaha wasn’t given a chance to prove himself. Whilst he’s obviously not fully developed yet, his pace and ability to running at players surely could have been at asset to United in some games last season, yet he was only given two appearances in the Premier League, both from the bench.
Zaha has spoken about his relationship with Moyes today, but doesn’t blame the former United manager for not giving him a chance.
“There was so much pressure on him, so I can’t really blame him,” said Zaha. “To be honest, if you are not the manager’s cup of tea you can’t do anything about it. It was definitely not my attitude. The manager had his way of playing and maybe I just didn’t suit it. This manager will tell you exactly how he wants it. He won’t beat about the bush or not tell you anything. He’ll just tell you and that helps you, instead of isolating you or just not telling you. He will let you know exactly where you are and what you are doing wrong.”
Zaha is clearly enjoying life at United more now since Louis van Gaal has taken over!
