Football: Zaha says Instagram photo was not slight on Moyes

LONDON (AFP) - Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha, currently on loan at Cardiff City, has denied criticising United manager David Moyes in a post on photo-sharing website Instagram.

The 21-year-old winger published a picture on the site showing him receiving instructions from Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, accompanied by the caption: "Nothing like someone who believes in you.."

Zaha joined Cardiff on loan last month after making only four appearances for United under Moyes following his close-season switch from Crystal Palace, which could cost up to 15 million pounds (S$31.2 million).

However, despite subsequently deleting the Instagram picture, Zaha declared that he was merely praising Solskjaer, rather than criticising Moyes.

"My picture actually meant ole solskjaer has a lot faith for me to do something for cardiff's current position," he wrote.

"My last Instagram picture was not intended as a dig or indirect at my manager, I have nothing but respect."
