Zaha Has Ronaldo Potential
Being put in the same bracket as Cristiano Ronaldo isn't a bad thing is it, but it could also see added pressure grow on Wilfried Zaha.
Zaha the next Ronaldo?
If he can be a fraction as successful during his loan with us that'll do me and OGS told the Daily Mirror that he knows how hard Ronaldo worked when he was a team mate of his at Manchester United and he's challenged Zaha to do the same.
The raw talent is something that the winger definitely had, commitment and dedication is needed and if he shows this he can go far.
'He is one of the best I have seen with the ball.
'He has quick feet and is brave like Cristiano and wants to go forward but he has got to make a decision about how good does he want to be and how much does he love this game. He can grow up to become a proper player like Ronaldo if he wants.
'I have never seen anyone work as hard as Ronaldo. Before training, after training, he was an exceptionally dedicated man and proved to everyone what dedication gets you.'
Comparing Zaha to Ronaldo might be a tad unfair but OGS went on to say that he's happy to make such comparisons.
The wingers immediate aim is to inspire us to Premier League survival, and his debut as a second half sub on Saturday wasn't a bad way to start, but in the long term he had been backed to be a success at Old Trafford and in particular if he has the dedication that the Portuguese superstar did to become the very best.
