Palace signing Phillips eager to work with Man Utd dazzler Zaha
Phillips left Blackpool to link up with old boss Ian Holloway at Selhurst Park in a last-minute loan switch on deadline day.
He said: "I asked Zaha how old he was and he said 20 and I thought, 'Blimey, I'm 19 years older - I could be his dad!'
"He's an exciting prospect and there are many others in that dressing room.
"I'm looking forward to working with them."
