Wilfried Zaha really likes working under Patrick Vieira at Crystal Palace, says journalist Tom Barclay.
Vieira succeeded Roy Hodgson as Palace manager in the summer and seems to be really getting the best out of Zaha.
The 29-year-old winger has come up with some big goals for the south London club this season, scoring against both Tottenham and the current Premier League champions Manchester City.
Has Zaha impressed you this season?
Zaha has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park in recent years, with Arsenal previously trying to sign him, but Barclay has told TIF that the Ivory Coast international is really happy with life in SE25 right now.
“He seems as happy as he has been in a long time at Palace at the moment, really likes working under Vieira,” The Sun journalist said. “He’s playing well.”
Zaha is not the only Palace attacker who has been playing well this season, with summer signing Odsonne Edouard also making an impact under Vieira.
The Frenchman was on the scoresheet in that 3-0 victory against Tottenham, too, before firing past their north London rivals Arsenal in a 2-2 draw at the Emirates. It is certainly an exciting time to be a Palace supporter, with the Vieira revolution fully underway.
