Palace boss Warnock: Zaha, Johnson have club in their hearts

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock is delighted to have old boys Andy Johnson and Wilfried Zaha in his squad.

Both players were with the club during Warnock's previous time in charge.

He told the London Evening Standard: "They have Palace in their hearts and the fans will relate to them. It wasn't a case of panicking.

"Wilfried has something to prove. It will make such a difference that the fans are behind him. At Man United they don't seem to have time for the youngsters but he won't find that a problem here.

"It is one of the reasons why I brought Andy back to the club, not just for playing but pushing people to get into the first team. I asked him if he would do a bit of coaching with the strikers and he's enjoying it. We have Fraizer Campbell, Dwight Gayle and Zaha and they're all young lads with a lot to learn. He is the ideal person to teach them a few things."
