Wilfried Zaha is set to return to England shortly following his country’s exit from the African Cup of Nations this Thursday.
It was not a good day at the office for the Ivory Coast as they crashed out of the competition after a heartbreaking penalty shootout in which Wilfried Bony and Serey Die missed from the spot.
Zaha took to Instagram shortly after the game and wrote an inspirational message to his teammates and fans alike.

Les gens diront ce qu’ils veulent de nous, mais pour moi personnellement, je suis fier de mon pays et de mon équipe. Ce n’est pas la fin de notre histoire, nous serons de retour plus forts ?? Toujours ensemble pour la Côte d’Ivoire ??

He mentioned that he is proud of his teammates and friends and that no matter what others say, they will come back stronger.
Of course, such a message prompted the Ivory Coast and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba to reply with a message of his own.
Drogba told him that he should keep his head up and commended him for his brave and inspiring words.
Now that he is done with his national team, at least for the time being, Zaha can focus on the new season and a potential summer transfer.
The links to Arsenal are still lurking and if the latest reports are to be believed, the Gunners will be upping their offer significantly in order to land their target.
