Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has said that he has a long way to go before he can be compared with club legend Marcel Desailly.
Zouma told reporters: "What the boss said, that I could be like Desailly, is a lovely thing. But it is too early to say that because Marcel is a legend of Chelsea and I have only played 10 games and I am 20 years old. I have to improve.
"Marcel is one of my idols. I loved to watch him play when I was younger. He was an amazing performer and important for Chelsea. To be like him I have to keep working hard.
"I have never met him but one day I hope I will. I was just happy to play in that team yesterday. Everyone wants to win titles. I am so happy."
Zouma joined Chelsea from Saint-Etienne last year.
