Manchester United starlet told to push for first team spot

Wilfried Zaha must learn the ropes under Manchester United boss David Moyes - according to his former boss Ian Holloway.

Zaha agreed to join Manchester United last January in a deal believed to be worth around £12 million.

He eventually hooked up with his new team-mates at Old Trafford over the summer but has so far failed to make an impact, and is yet to play a single Premier League minute.

Under Holloway, Zaha helped fire his former team Crystal Palace to promotion last season, and the Eagles boss believes his former charge needs to learn more about Moyes's approach to management in order to force his way into the Manchester United first-team.

“He’s got to learn what his new manager wants him to do to get picked,” said Holloway. “He’s obviously not doing it so he needs to take responsibility and go and do it.”

“It’s tough for everyone at the start of your career to get respect and to get your foot in the door.

“You’ve got to learn to do what the manager wants you to do. That’s all I’ve ever said to him is that what he was to do and his ability will shine – provided you’re worthy of a shirt.

“When you’re expected to win every week, you’ve got to do the ugly side as well – which I know he can do.

“I’m sure in his ability and he’ll do it right and be the right type of player for Manchester United. I don’t see him every day so I can’t really comment on it.”
