The Manchester United winger took to Twitter, while out in the States on a pre-season tour, to make a cryptic statement.
Wilfried Zaha has taken to social media site Twitter to make a rather cryptic statement after finally making an appearance for Manchester United this summer.
The young winger’s tweet can be seen below, after his patience paid dividends last night as he got a run out in United’s tour of the USA against Inter Milan.
Keep faith no matter what !— Wilfried Zaha (@wilfriedzaha) July 30, 2014
The Red Devils ran out eventual winners against the Italian giants last night, as they beat the Serie A club in a penalty shoot-out, and they will now wait to face Real Madrid in the final leg of their tour on Saturday.
In the match Zaha came off the bench in the second-half to get his first minutes under new United manager Louis van Gaal.
It was originally thought that the fleet-footed winger’s lack of first team-football came from his attitude in training after the Times reported a telling story about his time under the Dutchman so far.
They said that Zaha was the only player in the squad to skip a training session, which Van Gaal had said was non-compulsory and that the 62-year-old had been thoroughly unimpressed by his absence.
However, Van Gaal moved quickly to quash these rumours, saying that: “he is working good and doing all that I demand.”
It now seems that the ‘faith’ Zaha has been talking about has been rewarded and he will be hoping for more first-team action as the season progresses.
The England international had a torrid time in his first season at Old Trafford and was eventually loaned out to Cardiff City after failing to make an impression in his first season at United.
It led to rumours that he could be have been set for a move away from the club this summer, but it appears that Van Gaal is prepared to give him another chance and it will be one that he is hoping to seize.
