Bolton boss Freedman: Zaha can make it at Man Utd

Bolton Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman says Wilfried Zaha can make it at Manchester United.

Freedman worked with Zaha when in charge of Crystal Palace.

"Wilfried will play in the Premier League some day," said Freedman to the Manchester Evening News. "Which club he goes to I don't really know but whichever one he ends up at will have one hell of a player.

"I found him at the age of 14 and he had a hunger and desire to make the first team then.

"So whichever side he goes into Wilf will settle down. He is a hard working young player and will produce the goods for United, City, Tottenham, Arsenal, whoever.

"He has a 'no fear' attitude when he goes on the pitch. He is a very shy man off it.

"But he could walk into a dressing room of established Premier League players and easily hold his own."
