Zaha opens up on Man United "hell" and how club treated him

Wilfried Zaha has revealed his time at Manchester United was "hell" and that the club left him depressed.

The Crystal Palace forward joined the Red Devils in 2013 as a 19-year-old after impressing in the Championship.

But in his debut season at Old Trafford Zaha only made four appearances before being loaned out to Cardiff in January.

At the end of the season Zaha was sent back to Crystal Palace on loan.

By February the switch was made permanent, putting an end to his United nightmare.

Zaha has revealed that his lack of chances were hard to take, even more so because getting to United in the first place wasn’t easy.

"I was dealing with this at 19," Zaha told Shortlist. "Living in Manchester by myself, nowhere near anyone else, because the club had a hold over where I lived.


"They hadn’t given me a car, like every other player [had]. Nothing. I’m living in this hell by myself, away from my family, and I thought, ‘If this doesn’t make me stronger, what will?’."

He continued: "When I was at United I had [money], but I was still so down and depressed. People think your life’s different because you’ve got money, you’ve got fame, so they don’t treat you the same."

But despite going through hell Zaha has revealed that he has no regrets over moving to United because it made him stronger.
