Wilfried Zaha: Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has rubbished claims by his national team manager that he is considering his Ivory Coast future. He revealed that his absence from the current squad is down to recovering from an infection. He has 20 caps for the country scoring five goals in the process.  His manager recently said that he was unavailable for selection against Mozambique and Cameroon as he “asked not to come” Zaha has come out and said that his manager is mistaken.

“Despite numerous press reports, I have never said at any time that I am reconsidering my international playing future.” Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha said. “To pull on the Ivory Coast shirt and represent my country is an honor that I never, ever take for granted. During the last international fixtures, I picked up a viral infection while traveling and was ill when I returned, unable to train and was forced to miss Crystal Palace’s game against Arsenal.”

“As I don’t feel fully recovered, I spoke to the manager and asked his permission to miss the next two games,” he added. “I will of course be available and present if I am selected for future games and wish the team every success in the next two matches and qualification for the World Cup.”
