Lampard incenses “the important” Zouma

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has spoken highly of his French defender Kurt Zouma.

Summoned by Didier Deschamps during the last meeting of the France team, Kurt Zouma did not really prove to his advantage during the defeat of the Blues against Finland (0-2). However, the former Stéphanois made a convincing start to the season with his club Chelsea, Evidenced by his 96.3% of aerial duels won in the Premier League, according to calculations by the CIES Football Observatory, more than any other player in Europe. A statistic that has not escaped Frank Lampard, who has not dried up praise for his French defender.

“He must stay at this level”

“I saw this statistic and I’m not surprised, said the coach of the Blues at a press conference. That’s a great stat. It has to stay at that level and it will remain very important. It is important for us this season on the pitch. During our pre-season, we worked particularly on the defense in our area, which is something we could have been better at last year. We have to continue like this, because that’s why we have a good run of clean sheets and conceded few goals. Kurt helped with that. Each player on our team must play a role in the air when necessary, against teams with dangerous individualities. “
