Cape Town - Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha claims Manchester United is 'just another team' as he targets FA Cup glory against his former club.

Zaha, who was Sir Alex Ferguson's last signing as Red Devils manager, was tipped for a bright future at the club after his £10m move from Palace.

However, under Ferguson's successor David Moyes, Zaha failed to make in impact during their transitional phase and only made two league appearances before being shipped out on loan.

After impressing during his loan spell back at the Eagles - the move was made permanent for a cut-price £3m deal on a five-and-a-half-year contract.

The 23-year-old insists he has no hard feelings against his former club and is fully focused on helping the Eagles lift the FA Cup trophy at Wembley on the 21st of May, after their 2-1 triumph over Watford in the semi-final.

"My only objective is to win, it could be United it could be Aston Villa or Chelsea, I just want to win," the England international told The Guardian.

"It doesn't mean anything to me. I went to United and what happened there happened. I'm back at Palace now so I'm just looking forward to the final.

"I don't have anything against United - it won't make me run any faster, I'll still play the same way."
