Yannick Bolasie compares Wilfred Zaha to Neymar

According to Yannick Bolasie, Wilfred Zaha's skills and creativity have him on the same level with PSG's Neymar.

The former Crystal Palace winger formed a formidable partnership with Zaha before he made a move to Everton, and they were defenders nightmares.

Now on loan at Sporting CP, Bolasie believes Zaha has the ability to play for the big clubs in Europe, amid links to Arsenal, Spurs and Bayern Munich.

“I think I would have taught him some things, to be honest, some little things he would have taken from my book,” Bolasie told Palace’s official website.

“When I said Wilf has a Neymar kind of ability, people were like: ‘Nah, nah, nah,’ but then they started looking and saying: ‘Actually, he does.”

“Every season for me, he’s come out and proved he’s got better. Just in different types of ways. He’s setting up teammates, setting up people to score, he’s releasing passes quicker than I’ve seen him release passes before.”

“I’m seeing an improvement in his whole game, he’s not just this dribbler that everyone thinks he is; he can see a pass and a through ball.”

Zaha's contract with the Eagles runs until the summer of 2023.
