Palace signing Phillips eager to work with Man Utd dazzler Zaha

Crystal Palace signing Kevin Phillips is ready to take new Manchester United signing Wilfried Zaha under his wing.

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.”
