Wilf's warm welcome

Wilfried Zaha insists he feels right at home at Manchester United, despite only training with his new team-mates for the past two weeks.

The former Crystal Palace winger has caught the eye in each of his three pre-season performances so far and was singled out for praise from boss David Moyes following the Reds' match in Yokohama on Tuesday night.

And although Zaha has admitted he's still somewhat "starstruck" when he looks around the United dressing room, the 20-year-old says he's settling in well.

"Everyone’s so nice and they make you feel comfortable," he told ManUtd.com. "I was so nervous when I came in, but I was made to feel at home straight away.

"On my first day at the club there were about 100 people I needed to meet. I was going around shaking people’s hands and thinking ‘I’m never going to remember these names!’. But it is like a family here."

Senior members of the squad have also gone out of their way to welcome the new recruit, while Zaha revealed he's struck up a close bond already with Danny Welbeck.

Happy and settled

"All the people at the club are chilled out and this tour is giving me the chance to get to know everyone. I’m enjoying it."
