Sakho called every first-team player to a highly-charged meeting on the eve of their Premier League opener with the Toffees — without the knowledge of Roy Hodgson.

The Palace boss had sent Zaha home 24 hours earlier because he thought the player’s head “was not right”.

Hodgson, who was desperate to keep hold of the forward, has since been told details of the players’ decision to confront him.

When Zaha returned to training on Friday, he was immediately ordered into a summit masterminded by Sakho.

The French defender demanded 100 per cent commitment from Zaha until the January transfer window opens.

And it led to Zaha agreeing to put his differences with Palace’s hierachy to one side.

Hodgson then put him in the squad to face Marco Silva’s team — and he came on as sub in the 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park.

Zaha had told Palace he wanted to join Everton.

The ambitious Merseysiders offered him a package worth more than £200,000-a-week.
