Crystal Palace manager, Roy Hodgson has come out to say that he hopes Wilfried Zaha will stay at the club. Roy recently revealed that he wants the winger to remain at the club after his departure this season.
According to him, Zaha has definitely been an important player since he joined the club, and the club still needs such a fantastic footballer around.
Hodgson added that he doesn’t think there is any particular desire for the club to lose Wilf, even if they have to be realistic in the transfer market.
His words, “If I was going to be continuing at this club as a manager I’d definitely want to be doing that with Wilf Zaha.”
“He’s been fantastic in the period of time I’ve been at the club and is still such a vital player for us.”
“I don’t think there’s any particular desire for the club to lose Wilf. But the club is realistic and they know also that Wilf has ambitions of his own.”
“Maybe he will be less keen to stay than we are to keep him. But if that is something that rears its head and, there is a club coming to steal Wilf from us, that will be a situation the club will have to deal with.”
“I don’t envy the club or the new manager that problem, but I hope that – now as a fan of the club rather than an employee – Wilf will stay because he still has so much to offer.”
Zaha added, “I feel like I can have another shot at the top teams because my dream is to win things.”
“I’m good enough to go out there and compete with the best. If the opportunity came, I wouldn’t turn it down, because I feel like I deserve it. It’s so I can show my kids: ‘This is what daddy won.’”
