Mourinho told me I was rubbish - Kurt Zouma

Mourinho told me I was rubbish - Kurt Zouma

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has reflected on a situation that happened between him and Jose Mourinho during the Special one time at Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho brought in a young Kurt Zouma to Chelsea from Saint - Etienne but was quick to condemn the France International after a poor performance.

Kurt Zouma who is now 25 reflected on the situation while speaking with RMC Sport and admitted he felt really bad when Jose Mourinho said that to him and that from that he wanted to prove him wrong.

'I cannot remember which match we were playing, we were losing 3-1, away from home,' Zouma said

'The following day, he [Mourinho] catches up with me, he takes me to his office, and he asks me if I am ok. I said yes, he asked me if I was sure.'

'I said yes again, he replied ‘Because you were rubbish this weekend.’ Like that, direct. It shocked me, but it made me want to immediately respond on the pitch.'

'I remember that it hurt me, that it affected me. But I really wanted to show him that I could react.'

Kurz Zouma however, also praised Jose Mourinho for the way he handles young players in contrary to what people think about the now Tottenham player.

'He is someone who loves victory. He uses all the tools possible to achieve it,' He added

'I came here at 19 and he played me. I was able to have my chances, I played my matches.'

“I don’t know what other people think, we all have different opinions, but from my side, I don’t really agree.'
