|They were the sort of games where you're almost putting him in to sink or swim,
said Roy Hodgson, his manager.
In many teams, there is a player of that type, a player who is a talisman and a player that the team really depends upon,
Hodgson told reporters.
There's never been any question of the club wanting or being interested in any offers for Wilf Zaha,
I am delighted to have extended my contract with Crystal Palace,
Hodgson said .
