Young defender eager to impress Mourinho.
Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has insisted that he is happy to sit on the bench for now, as long as he continues to impress on the pitch when he does get on, according to The Sun.
The 20-year-old star has conceded that he is currently sat behind the best central defensive partnership in the Premier League in the shape of John Terry and Gary Cahill.
And aware that he is still learning his trade, Zouma has admitted that he is happy to learn from the experienced duo for the meantime by playing his part from the bench.
“I’m happy and proud because I’ve started some games. I have to continue,” he said.
“The game tomorrow will be difficult, we know, but we have a very good team and a squad to win. We have to win.
“If I start, I’ll play the same game I’ve played before. I have to be ready for that.
“First of all, I think I was happy with my debut in the Premier League and the League Cup.
“I’m very proud to be playing with two of the best defenders in the world – John Terry and Gary Cahill – who teach me on the pitch and I’m very happy with that.
“If I am on the bench, I have to learn and wait for my opportunity.
“That is not a problem.
“But when I am on the pitch, I have to improve all the time.”
