"Obviously, getting to United isn't easy, so not being given a chance is hard to take", the winger told The Sun.
Zaha's struggles saw him make just four appearances for the club before being shipped out to Cardiff on loan. There were rumours that the reason I wasn't playing for United was because I slept with David Moyes's daughter, and no one attempted to clear that up.
Ivory Coast star Wilfried Zaha has accused Manchester United of failing to give him adequate support during his horror spell during which he was accused of having a relationship with then manager David Moyes' daughter. So I was fighting my demons by myself, these rumours that I knew weren't true. "I feel as though I can deal with anything now". "I think that was simply a reference to the fact that after every game clubs are asked to comment and send a report on the game", the former England boss said.
"I was dealing with this at 19; living in Manchester by myself, nowhere near anyone else, because the club had a hold over where I lived. Nothing. I'm living in this hell by myself, away from my family, and I thought, "If this doesn't make me stronger, what will"?" Normally Zaha will receive more tackles than others because he is a great player and he runs at people. "People think your life's different because you've got money, you've got fame, so they don't treat you the same".
The 25-year-old has scored three goals in four league games for Palace but was criticised for his comments last weekend.
And Palace manager Hodgson denied reports he has been in contact with Professional Game Match Officials Limited managing director Mike Riley regarding Zaha.
The Ivory Coast worldwide also regularly has genuine penalties declined by referees due to a perceived, unfounded reputation in the press.
"He has a lot of experience, even if his record is not the best in terms of red cards, but I'm confident he is a very good referee with a lot of experience and he will deal with the situation in a normal way". "I don't think we should be in such a rush to criticise someone for coming out and saying something heartfelt".
