Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has expressed his disappointment for young forward Wilfred Zaha following the announcement of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, the Daily Mirror reports.

The 20-year-old agreed a deal to join the champions at the end of the season and Holloway has said that he will go down in history as Fergie’s final signing for United before bowing out and then expressed his disappointment for the player as he now won’t get the chance to play under the iconic manager.

“I fell pretty sad real, it’s the end of an era,” he said.

“For Wilf as well as I’m sure he wanted one or two seasons with him. The best manager in my lifetime has suddenly stopped.”

“I had a chat with Wilf and I’m sure when it all settles down, they will be in touch. I’ll have a little word with him again today. He goes down as Sir Alex Ferguson’s last ever signing – it’s not a bad one.”

Zaha agreed a £15 million move in January but was loaned back to Palace to continue his education. He has been in sparkling form again this term, helping the club to clinch a playoff spot by bagging three goals and 10 assists in 43 league appearances.
