Wilfried Zaha glad Aaron Wan-Bissaka is being recognized at global stage

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is glad that the world can finally see and appreciate the talents of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Wan Bissaka who just Zaha graduated from the Crystal Palace academy moved to Manchester United in the summer in a £50million deal and according to Zaha, they already knew what the defender was capable of even before his move to United.

Asked during a live Q&A with fans which player was the hardest to face in training, Zaha said: "Aaron. He is very good, so hard to get past him.

"Have I watched him at United? I've watched a few games, what I thought of him is what I thought before.

"Everything that people are saying now - calling him 'The Spider' - we knew before; it is just that he is playing in front of the world now. We were saying it all before but it is nice to see the world know it now."

Zaha was speaking on the 10th anniversary of his first senior appearance for the Eagles during a 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City at Selhurst Park in 2010 and speaking about the experience, Zaha admitted it was emotional watching the videos.

"It is crazy. I remember every single one of my games like it was yesterday. 10 years is mad. It is emotional watching the videos back because those are some of the best moments of my career. I appreciate all the love of the club.

"All I remember is getting up from the bench and being so happy to be stood there coming on the pitch," Zaha said.
