Zouma: I Want To Do A Varane


Recommended Posts

Chelsea new young center back, Kurt Zouma, expressed today in an interview with French paper, L'Equipe, his desire to do at Chelsea what his countryman, Rafael Varane, managed at Real Madrid.

Varane made the breakthrough in Madrid under current Chelsea manger, Jose Mourinho, despite having some top class players ahead of him, and Kurt 'Happy' Zouma is hoping the same would happen to him:

“Jose Mourinho told me: ‘Rafael Varane, I made him start against Manchester City. You have to be ready to play at any moment'." Said Zouma.

“Now there are senior players, stars in my position, and they are doing a great job. I take my time. I am learning besides those defenders. I know my time will come. "

Varane is now a regular with France who will be hosting the 2016 Euros, and that seems to be one of the main career objectives of Zouma's.

“I am using Varane and (Eliaquim) Mangala as role models. Nowadays they are in the French team and I hope to join them. Euro 2016 is an objective I set to myself. Even if it will be very difficult to get a position, the door is not so far away.”

The young Frenchman also discussed in the interview the great spirit inside the Chelsea dressing, revealing that he is often at the end of his teammates jokes because of his immense size:

“Diego Costa is very, very crazy. Ivanovic makes a lot of jokes too. Afterwards the group laugh a little about my age because, well, I'm a big man for 19-years-old. Even the coach when we were going for the blood test jokingly said, 'Here, now we'll see if you lied about your age'. But really they're cool, easy.”

Hopefully, Kurt gets the chance he deserves this season to prove his worth to the Portuguese manager.
