Stoke defender Zouma: I chose Chelsea over Inter Milan, Monaco due to Mourinho


Stoke City defender Kurt Zouma admits Jose Mourinho was key to him signing for Chelsea.

The former St Etienne stopper joined Chelsea as a 19 year-old and is currently on-loan at the Potters.

Zouma told Goal: “When I was eighteen, Internazionale and Chelsea wanted me. Also Newcastle United and AS Monaco were interested, but then called Mourinho, the man I was a big fan of when I was young. He called me and said it was all arranged, so I immediately went to Chelsea.

“He said: ‘Listen, I want you to come to Chelsea and you’ll start playing, you deserve that. I know you are still young, but age plays no role. When you come to my club, you play’.

“And I played, so I was very happy. I made the right choice. I have never regretted anything, nothing. I know I was young. I was only nineteen when I went to Chelsea. But I was with Mourinho and I knew that I was going to improve myself. That’s why I went to Chelsea, one of the biggest clubs in the world. “
