Photographs have circulated the internet and social media that implicate Zaha, a creative and trick-filled winger during his days at Crystal Palace, as a smoker. However, just like Jack Wilshere, who was also the centre of a smoking storm recently, Zaha has a defence.
For Wilshere, it was part of a gag he was playing but, for Zaha, it's a shisha stick with no nicotine! Who has the more believable excuse? Let us know…
All this hype on twitter about me smoking is incorrect. Yes it was a a shisha stick but not a nicotine version.— Wilfried Zaha (@wilfriedzaha) November 14, 2013
