Crystal Palace manager, Patrick Vieira has come out to say that he is impressed with the way Wilfried Zaha played in the team’s 3-1 win against Aston Villa at Selhurst Park. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he never wants Zaha to change from being the fighter that he is because the quality of his talent makes it really difficult for opponents when he is determined.
Zaha added that even if he needs him to be calmer on the pitch from time on time, he never wants him to stop competing.
His words, “I loved his performance [against Aston Villa] and don’t want him to change; he is a fighter,”
“When it’s tough he puts his sleeves up and is going into the fight. [On Saturday] he was really good, really good for the team – worked well and defended well from the front. That allowed us to win the ball high up the field and create those chances.”
“I think this is what he has to expect. The quality of his talent makes it really difficult for the opponent and sometimes they target him like they did [on Saturday],”
“I want him to be calmer but at times it’s really difficult. The referee was quite good… and that allowed him to stay into the game and play as well as he did.”
“I’m really pleased, delighted. We had a really good performance… We went through a difficult period but we remained calm, determined and competed well,”
“At times we played some really good football today so I’m really pleased with the quality and attitude we showed [on Saturday].
