Roy Hodgson: 'Etienne Capoue tackle affected Wilfried Zaha'

However, a move to Crystal Palace ensured and since then the 25-year-old has flourished at Selhurst Park going on to score 44 goals and produce a further 55 assists in almost 290 games for the Eagles and also happens to be their top scoring Premier League player with 24 goals.

Zaha failed to fire at Old Trafford, but was hardly given a chance by then-manager David Moyes, making just four appearances in the 2013/14 campaign. But the 25-year-old has signed a long-term contract with Crystal Palace and despite that Souness reveals that Zaha can replace Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid.

A former UEFA Champions League victor believes an African star, who plays in the Premier League, is good enough to play for Spanish giants Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.

I would be very disappointed if the Crystal Palace mascot was doing something like that to provoke the crowd against an opponent.

After being restricted to barely 30 minutes of action in those games, Sorloth added: "It's really nice, especially for the fitness, to show everyone on the staff that I can play 90 minutes".

"So we won't have too much option unless we are prepared to play Sunday, Tuesday, Saturday and I don't think there will be too many Premier League teams looking forward to playing their first teams in those situations".

"His change of direction, the balance he's got is quite unique".

Graeme Souness has paid Wilfried Zaha a huge compliment by suggesting that he could play for Real Madrid.

"He wasn't going for the ball, the referee is right there, I think he has to understand where the player is trying to tackle the guy and where the ball is".

"I think now he's ready".

Souness continued: "But I think he's got quite a unique talent and with the utmost respect to Crystal Palace, maybe he has been scarred by the experience at Man United, but he's ready for a big, big club".

The defender has been a mainstay in Roy Hodgson's lineup, but the former England boss was forced to hand Kelly his first Premier League start this season. Let us know in the comments.
