Well you might not have heard of him but Bury’s Tom Soares set Twitter all a flutter tonight as he tweeted to Zaha
All the best at #afc @wilfriedzaha this kid will boss it with arsenal
It seemed that people might not have believed him or thought he was stirring up trouble as 20 minutes later he tweeted
I might be a tinpot footballer but i don’t bullshit
Tom Soares came through Crystal Palace’s youth system overlapping with Zaha for one year in the youth team before Soares moved to the first team in 2003 and he remained at the club until 2008.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Crystal Palace’s Zaha for a few months now and while it seemed as if Palace would try to hold on to the player in order to secure promotion experts widely speculated that both a strong bid and a request from the player to leave would see him allowed to go.
Zaha is a self-confessed Arsenal fan and many hoped that when it did come to the time that the player would leave this would swing the decision in Arsenal’s favour. Speaking to the Daily Mail this weekend, Zaha said
‘I’m not a teenager any more. I’ve played more than 100 first-team games and this year is crucial to develop my football career. I want to establish myself in the Premier League and in international football.
‘I’ve played a lot in the Championship so having that new challenge in the Premier League, where everyone wants to be, would be great. To be honest, if I had the chance in January and Palace agreed, it’s something I’d want to go for.’
Of course, nothing is official at this point and it’s up to you how much you wish to believe Tom Soares.------------
