England Under-21s forward Wilf Zaha speaks of his early impressions of life with Man Utd
Wilf Zaha admits his first introduction to life with Manchester United has been an eye-opener.
The England Under-21 forward has been on tour in the Far East and Australia with the Reds as they prepare for the new season.
And after spending three days in Thailand and featuring in United’s first match against Singha All Stars, Zaha is getting used to life with his new club and the focus on them.
He said: "It's my first time on a tour like this.
"I'm not used to it. To have so many fans coming to watch a pre-season game is different."
The 20-year-old featured for 30 minutes in United’s 1-0 defeat in Bangkok on Saturday.
And he came closest to levelling the scores when his shot came back off a post in the second half.
But neither Zaha nor boss David Moyes will be reading too much into the result as the squad continue to condition themselves for their Premier League title defence.
The former Crystal Palace star explained: "I really just put my head down and tried to connect with the ball properly.
"It would have been a different story if it had gone in.
"I'm glad I had a go and it would have been a great day for me if I'd scored one. But it doesn't matter now.
"Just knowing I was on the pitch with Rio (Ferdinand), Ryan Giggs and Anderson was good enough for me."
United flew straight out of Bangkok in the early hours of the morning and have now reached Sydney, where they will spend a week before facing the A-League All Stars in the second game of their five-match tour on Saturday.
