Evra revisits Zaha problems (and rumours) at Man Utd

Patrice Evra revisited Wilfried Zaha's problems at Manchester United before starring in Crystal Palace's win yesterday.

Zaha made a big-money move to Old Trafford in 2013 and was notably Sir Alex Ferguson's final signing at United before he called time on his glittering managerial career.

After making his debut for United under Moyes, Zaha struggled for opportunities, playing on just three more occasions.

Their relationship was not helped by speculation regarding Zaha and Moyes' daughter Lauren, with Zaha denying those rumours and insisting he has never met her - even a late as this past month.

Evra told Sky Sports: "All the Crystal Palace fans, they know Wilfried deserves better than Crystal Palace with all due respect.

"He's such an electric player.

"I remember I think, what's real in his Manchester United career is when he had this true or untrue affair with David Moyes' daughter.

"Because I remember at the pre-season he was playing every day - and when that news comes out... out of the game and he disappeared.

"But what a player."
