Moyes: Trust me on Zaha. He has Man Utd future

Manchester United boss David Moyes has urged fans to trust him over his handling of Wilfried Zaha. Zaha, frozen out by Moyes, has been loaned to Cardiff City, where he was outstanding on debut in victory over Norwich City last week.

"At times you have to believe what the manager is seeing as well," Moyes said.

"There is big competition for those wide areas.

"When I came in, I had Antonio Valencia, Nani and Ashley Young. Then we had the emergence of Adnan (Januzaj). Shinji (Kagawa) can play off one of the sides.

"I have seen Wilfried training every day as well. I am privy to that."

Indeed, Zaha had been told he could go out on loan if the opportunity arose, only for injuries to delay his exit until the end of last month.

"We might have got him on loan even earlier but for the (hamstring) injury to Nani. I just wanted to see how that was," Moyes said.

"It is good for him, it is good for his development. Everybody will have a chance to see how he plays.

"The idea is he shows what he can do and comes back a better player for Manchester United."
