Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma doesn’t give up on his career at Stamford Bridge: the French central back moved on loan to Everton last month, a year after signing a new six-year deal with Chelsea.
“I will go back, yes,” Zouma told British media.
“I have always believed in myself since I started playing football at 16. I have always wanted to show myself at Chelsea since I have been there.”
Zouma, who spent last season at Stoke City, said new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri agreed to the temporary switch only because there had been a surplus of centre-back options at Stamford Bridge.
“I knew I needed to play regularly so I didn’t want to stay on the bench and wait for my chance after two or three months,” he added.
“He (Sarri) agreed with me. I spoke with him and I knew at Chelsea they had five central defenders already.”
“I have come here to play and I want to take the opportunity the manager has given me,” Zouma said.
“We played well in the three games, especially with the away games with 10 men. The spirit is good. With the players we have, we can do something.”
