Crystal Palace star Zaha: I want to win trophies; I'm still hot

Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha insists he's still good enough to succeed at a big club.

Zaha, who has scored 11 times in the Premier League this term, was close to joining Arsenal two summers ago before Nicolas Pepe was signed instead for a club-record £72million from Lille.

"I feel like I can have another shot at the top teams, because my dream is to win things," Zaha told The Face.

"I'm good enough to go out there and compete with the best.

"If the opportunity came, I wouldn't turn it down, because I feel like I deserve it. It's so I can show my kids: 'this is what daddy won'.

"I'm 28, but my career's still hot.

"People thought I was done: going to Man United and that not working out, me going to Cardiff.

"But I've gone back to Palace, restarted my career, and I've stayed relevant and hot throughout this time.

"My name is still in people's mouths. You can say what you want but I'm still here and I'm still hot."
