The 20-year-old, who has received his first call-up to the senior England squad ahead of the international friendly against Sweden this week, was quoted as saying that he never thinks that other players are better than him.
Zaha tweeted: "My words were absolutely twisted and taken the wrong way in my last interview but I will learn from this and explain in further detail what I mean when I make certain statements. Thanks for all the supportive messages and those who understood my interview wasn't me trying to [be] arrogant."
