Man Utd Flop Comments On Reports He Slept With Coach's Daughter

A former Manchester United flop has finally responded to rumours he was kept out of the Red Devils' side because he slept with the manager's daughter.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see United's highest-paid players, and what they earn weekly, according to Total Sportrek.

Wilfried Zaha joined United from Crystal Palace in January 2013, with David Moyes taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford six months later.

However, the winger made a total of just four senior appearances before he was loaned back to Palace and then to Cardiff City, and was eventually sold back to the Eagles in February 2015.

During the early parts of his spell at United, there were rumours in England that Zaha had been close with Moyes' daughter, which led to a lack of game time, but Zaha has now rubbished those reports.

"No one at the club at all told me anything, I didn't know what to do whatsoever," the Ivorian said during an Instagram Live chat with Rio Ferdinand.

"I remember tweeting something about it saying 'silly rumours' because it was getting too much, so I had to say something myself and then I remember the club media messaging me saying 'You shouldn't have done that, you shouldn't have done this', and I'm thinking, 'You haven't helped me'.

"I'm here by myself, struggling because people are telling me I've slept with the manager's daughter and that's why you're not playing me.

"The funny thing is, it's carried on for so long I felt like, 'Is the manager not going to come and have a word with me over this?'

"That's how I felt and I'm thinking, 'This is ridiculous, man'. Up to this day, I still get people that think that's true and I've never even met his daughter."
