Can Kurt Zouma Become A Starter?

Here at Chelsea, our starting centre backs have been Gary Cahill and John Terry for quite some time.

Terry, 33, and Cahill, 28, will now be facing a stiff challenge from a very promising youngster. Kurt Zouma, who is only 19-years-old, is one of the best up-and-coming young talents in the game today and we should hope that he will be John Terry’s natural successor.

As each season goes by, our captain seems to lose more and more pace, but is somehow consistently able to produce strong performances and Gary Cahill is normally preferred as his natural partner in the centre of defence.

However, with the departure of David Luiz, Kurt Zouma is now our only cover for their positions. With his strength, speed and fine tackling ability, Zouma can perhaps start to show the kind of form that his countryman, Raphael Varane, did under our boss, Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

Varane’s meteoric rise to fame is well documented, and if Zouma can emulate the kind of fast-learning mentality of the Real Madrid star, he would certainly be an invaluable part of our team this season as well as for years to come.

John Terry is surely facing the final stretch of his career and Zouma would be a great long-term replacement.
