Wilfried Zaha says he is subjected to racist abuse in “nearly every game” he plays in.

The Crystal Palace and Ivory Coast winger claims he is called a “monkey and a n*****” regularly during games when discussing the resurgence of discriminatory abuse in football.

Earlier this year, anti-discrimination group Kick It Out highlighted a Twitter user calling Zaha a “diving monkey” after he won a penalty in a Premier League game, as one of a number of discriminatory incidents to occur that weekend.

“Nearly every game I’m called a monkey or a n***** or a whatever,” Zaha told The Jackal magazine. “Imagine if I really got down about that?”

Zaha also says he has little desire to become an anti-racism campaigner, saying: “Yeah,​ Wilf Zaha’s going to make a speech about racism. [I’m] so over it.

“I don’t know if we’re animals to them or whatever. Why is this okay? Why are you saying these things right next to your five-year-old kid?

“And then, when you leave, what, you’re back to being a normal dad, working a normal job? People mask this stuff.”

The 26-year-old says he has turned to a life coach to help him cope with abuse alongside the rigours of professional football.
