Wilfried Zaha says that he is keen to take advantage of the clean slate at Manchester United following the arrival of Louis van Gaal.

The England international completed his long-awaited move to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace last year, but only spent half of the much-maligned David Moyes era at the club due to a loan spell with relegated Cardiff.

There has been talk that Zaha may be axed in the coming weeks ahead of the new season, with the likes of Newcastle thought to be keen on loan moves for the starlet.

However, the 21-year-old says that he is ready to stay at United and battle for his future as LVG sets about building a new period of success at the Theatre of Dreams:

“There’s a nice vibe, everybody’s working hard and we’re looking forward to the new season.” he is quoted by the Daily Star.

“For me, I definitely feel like this is a clean slate.

“All I’m trying to do is impress the new manager and get into his squad. All I can do is give my all. There’s a new manager and I want to make sure I show him what I can do.”

Zaha was unable to keep Cardiff clear of relegation at the end of last season, but despite the disappointment he believes he’s improved as a player due to his spell with the Bluebirds:

“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.”

    How can he be called a flop. He hasn’t played a competitive match for United. He deserves a chance.
