Manchester United coach Phil Neville insists management believe in Wilfried Zaha.

Neville describes Zaha as a "diamond" and says the former Crystal Palace star deserves six months to settle at the defending champs.

"Wilf is a diamond. People say: 'Why is he not playing?' But we're seeing the same with [Marouane] Fellaini and we've seen it with Vida [Nemanja Vidic] and Patrice [Evra] in the past. The first six months... forget the games, just being a Manchester United footballer, the intensity of training, the expectation, it's really hard. It blows you away," he told the Guardian.
