Wilfried Zaha is looking to bounce back under the new boss at Manchester United.

Manchester United's Wilfried Zaha is looking forward to a "clean state" at Old Trafford next season under new manager Louis van Gaal.

Zaha joined United from Crystal Palace in a £10million move, but made just two appearances for the club in his first season before being loaned out to Cardiff City.

After struggling to make an impact under David Moyes, the 21-year-old is excited to work with van Gaal and is looking to impress the new boss.

"For me, I definitely feel like this is a clean slate," Zaha told the Manchester United website. "All I'm trying to do is impress the new manager and get into his squad. All I can do is give my all. There's a new manager and I want to make sure I show him what I can do.

"Going to Cardiff was a really good experience for me. I managed to get quite a few games under my belt at Premier League level, which was good, and I feel like I've come back a better player.

"I've realised there are things about my game I need to work on and concentrate on and I know this is the best place to be if I want to improve. I really want to make myself a better player."

Zaha impressed in pre-season action in 2013, and was handed a starting spot by Moyes in the Community Shield. He failed to make an impact after that, however, recording just one other start for the club to date.

The winger hopes to make a similar impression ahead of this season as the squad heads to America.

"United are a big club so we need strong opposition and we've got that on pre-season this year," he said. "There's no doubt we'll be tested on tour and that's a good thing.

"It should prepare us well for the season ahead. I’m really looking forward to being involved and I can't wait to face those teams."
