Crystal Palace boss talks about Wilfried Zaha’s future in the club.

Roy Hodgson

is not worried about

Wilfried Zaha

and his future in

Crystal Palace

as he praises the player’s attitude. He has scored eight goals in 14 games in this season.

Hodgson said:

“There has been so much speculation regarding Wilf over the years that I tend to let those concerns disappear, as they often do.

“Wilf’s good and it doesn’t surprise me that there’s clubs out there who would like to sign him, but a lot of things have to be put in place before a player leaves a club.

“I’m just happy at the moment that Wilf is playing as he is, displaying his discipline and concentration and his passion for football and the club, and unless I’m given a reason to think otherwise, I expect that to keep going.”

And about the players whose contract will expire at the end of the season and the club’s response to that he said:

“Our squad is a good one at the moment and I’m happy with it, It’s a full squad with no particular gaps to fill so if anything is going to happen it would be on the basis that some players leave us.

“If that moment arrives I’m sure it’ll be a reason to sit down and talk about it, but there’s no point at the moment talking about these things.”

And about the cancelation of matches due to the pandemic he said:

“As far as I’m concerned we’re controlled by the Premier League who put an awful lot of protocols in place and up to now they’ve done an extremely good job of keeping football going through this pandemic.

“There are those of us who would like to see football continue as long as the Government and the Premier League are happy to do so, and I’ve got no strong reasons to suggest anything should change.”
