Preach Zouma, preach. Chelsea defender, Kurt Zouma believes Jose Mourinho is the best coach in the world and working with him has improved him.
The centre-back joined Chelsea in January 2014 from Saint-Etienne and spent the remainder of the season on loan with the club, he broke into the first team at Chelsea last season.
Zouma has started all seven matches for Chelsea this season and believes learning from Mourinho has been hugely beneficial.
“Mourinho? When he’s not happy he shouts a lot. He has taught me a lot. He does not like losing and expects a lot from me,” Zouma told Telefoot.
“Last year he spoke to me a lot about Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane. He told me I was making the same mistakes as him.
“For me, he is the best coach in the world.”
Zouma scored his first Premier League goal for the club in the 2-0 win over Arsenal last week, and he knows he has to keep working to remain in the XI ahead of captain John Terry.
“I want to keep playing, to keep my place in the team. You have to work hard for that,” Zouma added.
“Terry, a legend, is always here and is like my teacher when I was little. He is an example for me and tells me a lot of things.
“This is the club I have always dreamed of.”
