In a video shared on social media, an excited Zaha is seen cutting the rope as the painting was unveiled.

"Speechless! Words can’t exactly express or describe the joy I felt standing there and witnessing this painting with my family and friends honestly still hasn’t sunk in but all I can say is thank you," wrote the Ivorian striker on Twitter.

Zaha is out with an injury and will miss the final game of the season.

However, his contributions for Crystal Palace this season has been immense, scoring seven goals and provided two assists in 27 matches for the South London club.

Zaha linked Al Nassr move

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that weeks after sealing the most audacious transfer in their history, Al-Nassr could be lining up the signing of another Premier League star.

Wilfried Zaha is said to be tempted by the option of quitting the English league and linking up with Cristiano Ronaldo in the Middle East.

Zaha has rejected offers to extend his contract at Crystal Palace and could be allowed to leave in the summer.

Zaha spots difference between England and Ivory Coast

Crystal Palace star, Wilfried Zaha, has explained the difference between playing for Ivory Coast and England.

The two-time capped England player switched nationalities to play for Ivory Coast in 2016.

In an interview with Total Media podcast, the 29-year-old stated there is a massive difference in playing for the two countries, claiming there is a major infrastructural deficit with the African countries.
