Kurt Zouma: Mourinho told me I was rubbish at Chelsea, because of my performance

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has come out to says his former boss, Jose Mourinho called him “rubbish” after putting -up a poor performance in a game a few years ago.

“I cannot remember which match we were playing, we were losing 3-1, away from home,” Zouma told RMC Sport.

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

The 25-year-old came to Stamford Bridge when he was 19-year-old. Mourinho brought him from Saint-Etienne in 2014. Zouma clearly disagrees with people who say Mourinho has not utilized young players.

 He helped the side to win both the Premier League and League Cup in his debut season with the Blues. Zouma has been a regular at the back for Chelsea this season, with his 20 league appearances.

Zouma will come face to face with his old manager next Saturday when Mourinho will return to Stamford Bridge as his Spurs side take on Chelsea.
