Ex-Crystal Palace striker insists Zaha would be among United's greats had Sir Alex stayed in charge
- Glenn Murray believes the winger would have thrived at Old Trafford if he was coached by Sir Alex Ferguson
- Zaha returned to Selhurst Park after two years at Man United making only four appearances under David Moyes
“Palace definitely bring the best out of him and I’m sure it would be a worry in Wilfried’s mind that if he was to move again it may not go as well,” said Murray as he joined talkSPORT for an exclusive chat on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Friday.“I’m sure he’ll be a little bit scarred from the Man United move.
“But for me, I’ve seen him come through as a youngster and he is a fantastic player, the only way is up for him.
“And I honestly believe that if Fergie was still at Old Trafford when Wilfried went up there, he would be one of the best now.”
Sir Alex Ferguson's last ever signing as Man United manager joined Man United in January 2013 on a £15million fee. However, after the move was completed the 20-year-old at that time Zaha was loaned back to Crystal Palace and helped them secure promotion to the Premier League. When Wilfried finally joined Old Trafford in the summer Sir Alex already announced his retirement.
