Southgate: Cardiff loan great test for Man Utd's Zaha

England U21 coach Gareth Southgate feels Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha is facing a real test at Cardiff City.

Zaha is striving to help keep Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Cardiff City in the Barclays Premier League.

"Of course it'll be interesting for him," stated Southgate to manutd.com. "The thing for Wilf is, despite the number of matches he's played for Crystal Palace, it's his first experience of the Premier League really at Cardiff.

"It is a step up. It'd be easy to assume he would go there from United and everything would gel and he'd be hitting goals straight away but I don't think football works like that. Again, it's good for him to get that first taste of the Premier League and I'm sure he will go back to United a better player for that experience."
