Wilfried Zaha Opens Up On Rumours That He Slept With David Moyes's Daughter

Wilfried Zaha Opens Up On Rumours That He Slept With David Moyes's Daughter

Wilfried Zaha has addressed rumours that he slept with David Moyes' daughter during his spell at Manchester United.

Back in October 2013, during his first season at Old Trafford, there were rumours that Zaha was sleeping with David Moyes' daughter, Lauren, which apparently contributed to his lack of first team opportunities.

Zaha quickly denied the speculation, taking to his official Twitter account to address the "silly rumours".

The 27-year-old, who only made a handful of appearances for Manchester United before leaving Old Trafford in 2015, has now spoken about the gossip in an interview on Rio Ferdinand's YouTube channel.

Zaha says that he's "never even met" Moyes' daughter and claims the club didn't help during that period of his career.

"No one at the club at all told me anything, I didn't know what to do whatsoever," he said.

"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. I've never even met his daughter."

Zaha went on to explain how difficult the situation was.

"It was stressful. I'm 19, I'm living in Manchester and all of a sudden we come back from a tour and I'm not playing for no reason so obviously [people] are going to make up rumours,"

"I'm in Manchester where I'm by myself, and I'm not playing on top of that, so it's stressful enough to have a rumour.

"People came out with it, I see it trending on Twitter, people came out with how can he play so well on tour then just be dashed out like that with nothing, no one telling us anything - he must have slept with the manager's daughter.

"And that started going and I'm 19, and my Twitter is blowing up. I've never had it before and my Twitter is blowing up and there's no one for me to speak to.
