Crystal Palace boss Vieira insists no problem with Zaha

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira insists there's no problem with Wilfried Zaha.

Zaha endured a frustrating afternoon at home to Brentford for Saturday's 0-0 draw, with the Ivory Coast international repeatedly expressing his emotions towards referee Martin Atkinson.

The new boss and the Palace talisman also exchanged words at the end of the first half, but the former Arsenal captain praised the desire of his attacker.

“I think with Wilf, it is a package. This is why we love him and this is maybe why some people don't like him, but I love his competitiveness," Vieira insisted.

“He always wants to win. He will have to manage himself not to lose too much energy but I will want him to keep that kind of desire that he has on the field to compete and win football matches."
