VIDEO: Zaha's skills may well be better than Ronaldo's

Wilfriez Zaha 4

Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha showed off his skills during a video for England football sponsors Vauxhall.

Quite frankly, some of his skills are frightening and remind me of the time Cristiano Ronaldo first came to Manchester with all of those rapid step overs and fancy foot work which made him an instant target for Premier League hard men all over the country.

See if you can keep an eye on his feet because it’s actually very difficult with the pace he zips them about at. It also makes his ability to keep the ball under control remarkable.

Zaha completed his transfer to Manchester United last January and has gone back to Crystal Palace, literally scoring the goals against Brighton which secured Palace their place in the play-off final.

At times he was unplayable during that game and any United fan taking a look at this video will have a massive smile on their face because it’s more than justifiable to suggest he looks to have more skilful footwork than Ronaldo did at the same age.

Oh… and he managed to hit a drink balanced on a cross bar for good measure.

What do you make of those mad skills?
