Lord Sugar's unexpected response when asked what he makes of Wilfried Zaha

Does he even know he plays for Crystal Palace?

Unless we are mistaken, Wilfried Zaha is still a professional footballer.

Apprentice host and businessman Lord Sugar seemed to disregard that fact last night, when he offered a jokey response when asked what he thought of the Crystal Palace winger.

He was quizzed on Twitter about the former Manchester United signing, and offered an unexpected response.

Here's what he had to say...

Don't worry Palace fans, Zaha is not planning on donning a sequinned outfit any time soon, although his nifty footwork does frequently leave bystanders applauding.

Sugar is a Tottenham Hotspur fan - and former chairman of the club, and Zaha will get a chance to show him what he can really do in January when the two teams meet.

Last season he was just a late substitute as Palace won 2-1 at Selhurst Park against Spurs, and given the loss it's understandable Sugar may have intentionally forgotten.
