Leave that for Ronaldo, Messi – Zaha told club to join
Former Liverpool attacker Stan Collymore has urged Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha to join a Premier League side, such as Newcastle United or Aston Villa, and not follow Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s path.
Collymore said this while advising Zaha against joining a club in Saudi Arabia, adding that the 30-year-old should leave that to Ronaldo and Messi.
Ronaldo currently plays for Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr, and Messi, whose contract with Paris Saint-Germain will expire at the end of the season, has also been linked with a move to the Middle East.
Zaha’s contract with Crystal Palace will expire in the summer, and he is yet to pen an extension.
The Ivorian has been linked with a move to the Middle East in the summer.
“Wilfried Zaha would be crazy to go to Saudi Arabia. We know that the money is important for the players, but he will also win a lot of money in London. There are plenty of clubs that can still be helped by his talent in England, like Newcastle or Aston Villa,” Collymore said (via French publication Onze Mondial).
“He should ignore the easy option and leave that to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who have already achieved the greatest feats possible.”
