Cape Town - Crystal
Palace manager Sam Allardyce has warned Wilfried Zaha that an improved
contract will increase expectations on his performances.
The 24-year-old winger is in talks with the Eagles regarding a deal that would increase his wages to around £100 000 a week, which is on the same level as the top players at Selhurst Park.
However, Allardyce pointed out that Zaha should be aware that a better deal means more pressure to perform at a high level more consistently.
"Every player that gets more money I demand more of," said Allardyce, according to the Evening Standard.
"When he gets the bigger contract there is a bigger responsibility and I will expect a lot more than I am getting, which is saying something because I am getting an awful lot."
