Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha has shown off his incredible skills in the latest edition of Players Lounge, a popular feature from Rio Ferdinand's #5 Magazine.

The 21-year-old, who signed for the Red Devils in January before being loaned back to Crystal Palace until the end of last season, demonstrates how to pull off the perfect step-over, the most outrageous flip-flap and other eye-catching skills.

Billy Wingrove and Jeremy Lynch - from the F2 - then explain exactly how Zaha manages to produce these skills, which is handy because the England international moves at such incredible speed.

But how does the player himself explain how he became so skillful?

"When I get the chance I practice," Zaha reveals. "I practice so much that I'm able to do it in a match.

"You have to be confident in your own ability because you can't do a trick thinking it might not work."

The young winger also cited France legend Zinedine Zidane, who is unquestionably one of the most technically gifted footballers of all time, as the player he looked up to when growing up.

Zaha added that being at Manchested United was a "dream".

"It's the best feeling ever being at one of the best club's in the world," he added.

Manchester United supporters can expect to see a lot more of Zaha and his magnificent skills in the coming months and years.
