Kurt Zouma reveals secret behind resurgence of Chelsea players


Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has been hailed by pundits and former players for his resurgence this season, having played part in getting the team back to winning ways.

This is the first time Kurt Zouma is becoming a regular in his Chelsea career, having enjoyed six appearances in the Blues’ current unbeaten run. This reveals that something must be happening to push a player with two titles at the club to want to push himself at this time.

Kurt Zouma has revealed that the reason why the entire team is not sitting back and putting their feet up is that they are placed under pressure by manager Frank Lampard.

He hinted that you must work hard for you to be selected and once you get the call, you have to give your al to deliver good performance to help the team.

“I’m very happy to have played in the last games because the manager has given men the trust and I want to give it back” he said, adding that he always want to prove a point on the pitch to Frank Lampard.

To Kurt Zouma, it is a different scenario at Chelsea under Frank Lampard because of the pressure mounted on all players by the manager to deliver, and that has been helpful.

However, Everton made effort to snap up Kurt Zouma in 2019 when Frank Lampard just took over the job at Stamford Bridge but the manager rejected the offer and has been proven to have made the right choice.

He was part of the Antonio Conte team that won Chelsea’s last Premier League title and he feels like an old member of the team.
Meanwhile, the experience of Thiago Silva and the excellent performance by Edouard Mendy has been hailed and given credit for Chelsea’s great form and win for the past games.
