Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has come out to react to rumors linking Kurt Zouma out of the club. He recently revealed that there could still be a Stamford Bridge future for the defender.
According to him, he knows the centre back very well and what can be expected from him, plus he was part of the success last season.
He added that Zouma has delivered when he was needed in time past, so he is definitely a reliable option when called upon.
His words, “Kurt comes from a very different situation.”
“Kurt was part of the team for half a year, I know him exactly, what I can demand from him, what he can give to the team. He was part of a very successful half a season.”
“He was a very lively part of it, maybe not in minutes but I want to remember he was a crucial member of the team that won 2-0 against Atletico, for example.”
“So when he was needed, and he had some tough decisions against him, but when he delivered. So the situation isn’t comparable to Ruben [Loftus-Cheek].”
“Ruben needs to show now everything in some weeks if that’s possible. For Kurt, it’s different as I know what he can deliver.”
