Zaha keen to make his mark

Wilfried Zaha is determined to make a big impact on Tour 2014, presented by Aon, and give new manager Louis van Gaal an early selection headache.

Zaha shone during United's 2013 pre-season and was handed his full debut by David Moyes in the Reds’ Community Shield victory over Wigan at Wembley. But the winger made just one other start and two substitute appearances in the following four months before joining Cardiff City on loan in January.

There, he made 13 appearances for the Bluebirds as he gained valuable Premier League experience.

The 21-year-old enjoyed his time at Cardiff but says he's delighted to be part of the Reds' Tour 2014 squad and keen to give his new manager an idea of what he can do.

"It's great to be back," Zaha told "There's a nice vibe, everybody's working hard and we're looking forward to the new season.

"Going to Cardiff was a really good experience for me. I managed to get quite a few games under my belt at Premier League level, which was good, and I feel like I've come back a better player.

"I've realised there are things about my game I need to work on and concentrate on and I know this is the best place to be if I want to improve. I really want to make myself a better player."
