Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has stated his desire to depart the club to play Champions League football in the future.
The 26-year-old Zaha has seen his star rise in recent years in a second stint with the London club after struggling initially with Manchester United.
Zaha earned a name for himself with Palace in the Championship, but managed only one partial season with United, spending part of it on loan at Cardiff, before heading back to Palace.
“I’m too ambitious,” Zaha told the Daily Mail. “And not ambitious just to play for a top club, but to win things at club level and with the Ivory Coast.
“For me to be better, to achieve what I know I am capable of, I have to aim to play at the very highest level, to win trophies.”
Zaha does feel grateful to have achieved what he has thus far in his career, but believes he can prove himself on the greatest of stages if given the opportunity.
“I’m blessed to have come this far in my playing career. But I feel like there is so much more I have to offer.
“I have to experience the Champions League. I just need the opportunity, that’s it. And I’ll do the rest.”
