Sky Sports Pundit Hammers Crystal Palace Star For Being A 'Cry Baby'

Alan McInally: 'Do Me A Favour. Seriously, Do Me A Favour'
Alan McInally: "Do Me A Favour. Seriously, Do Me A Favour"

Sky Sports pundit, Alan McInally, has slammed Wilfried Zaha for suggesting that he needs more protection during a remarkable rant on the Soccer Saturday programme.

Zaha, the Crystal Palace star, has suggested in the past that he needs more protection from Premier League referees as he feels he is being unfairly - and roughly - targeted by opposition defenders.

McInally is having none of it though - as you can see from the full video of his impassioned speech further down this page!

When asked by Soccer Saturday presenter, Jeff Stelling, if Zaha is being unfairly targeted, McInally said:


His manager should have come out and said 'I'll have a word with him'...

I cannot believe he has come out and said, 'I need protection, I'm getting kicked because I'm such a good player'.

McInally, the former Celtic, Aston Villa and Bayern Munich player, continued...

To say he's getting targeted, I'm like 'forget it'...

Even half of the Palace fans must be thinking 'seriously, just play, just go and doing what you're really good at which is being an influence on our team, don't be a cry baby.'

McInally has urged Zaha to take a leaf out of the book of the legendary Lionel Messi...

If you were the manager of any team and you're playing Barcelona, would you target Messi? I don't once remember him giving it -  'I need protecting'.

Do me a favour. Seriously, do me a favour.
