Manchester United Manager David Moyes Not Convinced By Quality Of Yet Another Of Ferguson’s Recent Signings

England wide man has still to make a single competitive appearance for his new club so far this season under the Scot.

Manchester United manager David Moyes is understood to be concerned that recent arrival at Old Trafford Wilfried Zaha is not yet ready to feature in the Premier League for the Red Devils this season, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.

The exciting young England international was brought to Old Trafford by previous United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, with Zaha arriving in the north west from Championship outfit Crystal Palace during the last January transfer window.

However, the 20-year-old was immediately loaned straight back to the Eagles to spend the second half of the campaign at Selhurst Park, with his eye-catching form helping Ian Holloway’s side to reach the Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium in May, where the south London side beat Watford 1-0 to win promotion to the Premier League this season.

But so far, Zaha has still to make a single appearance for the top-flight champions in either the Premier League, UEFA Champions League or even the Capital One Cup under recently-appointed United boss Moyes, with his only match for his new side coming in last month’s Community Shield victory over Wigan Athletic at Wembley.

And despite Championship outfit Nottingham Forest having recently requested to take the wide man on loan this campaign, it is believed that Moyes would rather work with the Englishman on the training ground at Carrington instead as he attempts to fine-tune his game ahead of a possible Premier League debut further down the line.

Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa has been another notable and controversial exclusion from many of Moyes’ lineups so far this season.
