Wilfried Zaha: Refutes lazy claims

Wilfried Zaha has reacted angrily after being included in a ‘lazy’ Premier League XI constructed by his former team-mate Brede Hangeland.

The ex-Crystal Palace defender included Zaha alongside other high-profile names such as Emmanuel Adebayor and Dimitar Berbatov, claiming the Ivory Coast international barely put any effort in.

But Zaha refuted the claims made and said Hangeland has made up the story in order to keep his name in the press.

The Crystal Palace winger wrote on Twitter: “I don’t appreciate old team mates telling lies just to stay relevant! It’s sad.

“We all have different bodies so, because I’m not constantly in the gym or doing the same as someone else, doesn’t mean I don’t work hard.”
