Sam Allardyce Expecting More From Wilfried Zaha

Sam Allardyce Expecting More From Wilfried Zaha

The Ivory Coast global is a very good player and definitely could have played a big role in the Spurs squad but unfortunately it looks unlikely to happen - in the upcoming transfer window at least.

Andres Villas-Boas' Chinese Super League team Shanghai SIPG were initially scheduled to take part but have now pulled out, with Palace agreeing to step in at a late stage after they secured top-flight safety under Sam Allardyce.

"For me, we have to give our best performance at Old Trafford because our players want to play on the big stage".

"We've made a lot of changes behind the scenes, changes on the field, and in the end we've got what we wanted, we're safe with a game to go, we jumped a few places in the league, and everyone should be very satisfied with what they've achieved since I arrived".

"It's pretty significant, isn't it?"

"The big thing is to motivate yourself to do it now, because the relief at having got safe, and all the pressure they have been under, this sort of come down because of that pressure, we've got to make sure we build them up in the next couple of days and try and remind them (of its importance) for themselves". Otherwise I'd have been pondering too much.

Allardyce, who has since found work with Crystal Palace, was recorded mocking his predecessor on camera and he admits the episode was "embarrassing" and he's yet to speak to Hodgson to explain himself. "The more people like that support you, the quicker you recover".

And before a parliamentary select committee Robert Sullivan from the FA said I hadn't been in breach of any FA rules. Anybody with knocks or problems, I will not play.

It now looks like the Spurs deal could be dead in the water due to the mega-money offer that manager Sam Allardyce and chairman Steve Parish are prepared to offer to see him stay at Selhurst Park.
