Zouma: Terry my favourite player growing up

65955_933924626624345_4750977913225734414_nKurt Zouma is delighted with his move to Chelsea.

The former St Etienne defender admits he grew up following the career of Blues captain John Terry.

“My favourite footballers as a kid were John Terry and Mamadou Sakho. Terry is a great leader and the perfect example to young players starting out in the game,” he told chelseafc.com.

“It’s very exciting for me, I’ve always looked up to him as a player and now I just want to learn as much as possible from him. I spoke to him briefly and he’s a very nice man.”

On speaking with manager Jose Mourinho, Zouma added: “Yes, I spoke with him just for a short time and he explained what he expects from me. He’s the best manager in the world and I’m so happy to be able to work with him.

“It’s a big honour for me, Marcel Desailly was a fantastic defender, a great example, and I would love to be able to have a career like his during my time at the club. I hope I can become another great French Chelsea defender.”
