Zaha praises direct Allardyce approach

Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha reveals the manager Sam Allardyce's direct approach to coaching means every player knows exactly what is expected of them.

Allardyce has not had the best of starts since being appointed by Palace late last year, only picking up his first win in the league earlier this week, at the sixth time of asking.

However, despite his struggles, Zaha praised the increased structure he has brought to the club.

"He is brutally honest to the point where there is no grey area, you know what you should do and what you shouldn't do, and at the point we are now I think we need to know what we shouldn't do," the winger told Sky Sports.

"I feel like he has brought more structure to the team. We all know more what we are doing now, especially in this formation. Everyone knows what they are doing.

"He has told us to work on the basics and get them right first. If we sort that out there is no stopping us."

Next up for Palace in the Premier League is a must-win encounter against fellow relegation strugglers Sunderland at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
