Zaha To Shine At Old Trafford

Zaha To Shine At Old Trafford

Former manager George Burley has likened Wilfried Zaha to Maradona and Messi ahead of the Carling Cup quarter final game at Old Trafford.

Speaking to London24 Burley said that Zaha was more than capable of causing United problems on Wednesday and he's expecting him to shine on the big stage.

'Zaha is the type of lad people just bounce off when they try to tackle him, just like Maradona and Messi. He's such a naturally gifted footballer. He impressed me from day 1, you watch him sometimes and think, 'how did he do that'.'

Certainly going to be an interesting night for our youngsters, although the downside for Dougie could be January.
