Dion Dublin believes that Wilfried Zaha will have no problems settling into life at Manchester United – providing the youngster approaches his Old Trafford challenge with the right attitude.

Zaha sealed a move to United from Crystal Palace back in January before being loaned back to the Championship side for the rest of the 2012-13 campaign.

The highly-rated 20-year-old then helped the Eagles secure their route back into the Premier League thanks to a play-off final victory over Watford at Wembley last month.

And former United and Aston Villa defender Dublin has urged Zaha to approach his move to Old Trafford with the correct attitude if he wants to settle in quickly at the Premier League champions.

“What Zaha will have to do is find his feet,” Dublin told MUTV.

“He can’t go in all guns blazing because you can fall flat on your face against some of the best players in the world.

“Go in, respect what you are around, listen to the people who will teach you to become a better player, take it on board and he will do amazingly.

“It is not easy to settle in. You do have to go in with the right attitude in order to be accepted and to settle in quickly.

“You do get sussed out in the game of football very quickly if you go in with a chip on your shoulder and if you are bouncing about like you are the new boy on the block.

“You will get hammered in the dressing room and rightly so, especially when you come to a football club like this.

“I don’t know Zaha personally, but I have seen him play several times and I think he is an unbelievable talent and one that needs coaching.He needs to know when to do things, where to do things, how to do it, who to listen to, what to contribute to his team, but I‘m sure the manager will do that amazingly and pull him aside.

“It is not easy to settle in but it can be made easier if you go in with the right attitude.”
