Ian Holloway would love Wembley hero Wilfried Zaha back at Crystal Palace but knows David Moyes wants him at Old Trafford next season.
Zaha, 21, was inspirational in Palace’s 1-0 Championship play-off final win over Watford on Monday and won the extra-time penalty from which Kevin Phillips decided the tie.
A delighted Holloway admitted the England winger would now have a different set of priorities next season and thanked him for his match-winning contributions in the play-offs.
“I think he (Moyes) would be silly to give me him back,” he said. “Now we’re up it might be realistic, but who knows?
“He will know the task he’s got. Mine will be staying up, his will be winning every week. Good luck to him and good luck to us.”
Palace co-chairman Steve Parish also feels that Zaha will now stay at United and backed him to play a key role under Moyes.
He said: “I think Wilf should go and have his chance with Manchester United. I think he has earned that. We certainly won’t be making representation.
“I would hate him to go anywhere else if that was what they were going to do. Me, personally, I think he is good enough for their side.”
