Wilfried Zaha is to make a “substantial financial contribution” to support the development of Crystal Palace Ladies’ amateur players. On their official Twitter feed, the FA Women’s Championship outfit thanked Zaha, who last month signed a new contract with Palace, for his “stunning gesture”.
The 25-year-old replied by saying “no problem happy to help”.
A statement from Crystal Palace Ladies on cpfc.co.uk said: “We are delighted to announce that Wilf Zaha has contacted the club to make a substantial financial contribution to support the development of our amateur players.
“Everyone knows what Crystal Palace means to Wilf and he wants to give the same opportunities to the next generation of aspiring players at Palace Ladies that he enjoyed when coming up through junior teams.
“We are grateful for Wilf’s support and for the ongoing support of Crystal Palace Football Club and Utilita Energy, which enables our senior team to play in the FA Women’s Championship.”
