Zaha should stay humble and work hard, says Leon McKenzie

LEON McKenzie admits he's joined the Wilfried Zaha fan club after witnessing the academy product's talent in Palace's recent win at Peterborough United.

And despite speculation linking the 20-year-old with a move to the Premier League either in January or at the end of the season, McKenzie believes it would be in his best interests to stay with the Eagles, especially under manager Ian Holloway.

"I think sometimes there's only so much you can control," he told Advertiser Sport.

"Wilfried has got something about him that he can definitely go on to do great things.

"I like his style and the way he is on the ball.

"Maybe he does get a whack here and there, but he's still very young, he's learning still and he's come on bundles.

"He just needs to concentrate on what he's doing now for Palace and he's working under a fantastic manager.

"I know Ian Holloway very well and always admired him as a manager, so he's in the best hands for man management and dealing with him.

"I would say to Zaha to keep working hard and don't believe too much of the hype, even though you're a fantastic player.

"Just stay humble, work hard, and when the time is right to play at that higher level, you'll know when the time is.

"In due course, he will probably kick on, but right now he should stay at Palace because it's a fantastic club to be at.

"In all fairness, he's broken into the England squad now and he's at Palace, so for me, he doesn't need to leave the club right now.

"Logic tells you that he should keep cool because he might go to a bigger team and he might not play.

"He's going to play every week at Palace so I would say stay where you are."
