Freedman On Zaha & Olympics

Freedman On Zaha & Olympics

Dougie Freedman has expressed his delight at the possibility of Wilfried Zaha shining on the Olympic stage.

Speaking to Crystal Palace FC as we gear up for the new season, the gaffer said he would be delighted to see Wilf make the final squad as it could only be good for the player and the club.

'The Olympics are great for London and of course for us. It's a proud moment for the club to have Wilfried representing us as I strongly believe he can go all the way. He should be playing on these stages and would deserve the call up to the final squad if he gets it.'

The final squad of 18 will be announced somepoint in early July.

As ever the obligatory transfer speculation question was asked of Dougie when it came to Zaha this summer, and he said.

'Everything has been handled in the right way with the current owners in regard to handing the right type of contracts at the right time. Now everything is on our terms. When, of if, Wilf goes, it will be to the benefit of Crystal Palace instead of others. Hopefully though, we can fulfil his ambitions of achieving Premier League football and it would be great if Wilf was there with us.'
