Kurt Zouma sat down for an interview with the Evening Standard and named one West Ham player who is particularly ‘difficult to handle’.
The 26-year-old arrived at the London Stadium from Chelsea in the summer for just under £30 million.
Zouma has already established himself as a key player for the Hammers.
The Frenchman looks like a superb signing from David Moyes and he will undoubtedly increase West Ham United’s chances of finishing inside the top six this season.
Zouma has impressed his new teammates at the London Stadium so far, and the feeling is clearly mutual.
Kurt Zouma names West Ham player who is so difficult to handle
The former Chelsea ace obviously comes up against plenty of gifted attacking players during training at Rush Green.
One player stands out as far as Zouma is concerned, however.
The 26-year-old absolutely raved about Michail Antonio, when speaking to the Evening Standard:
“Trust me, he is very difficult to handle. He’s got everything – fast, accurate, dangerous, good on the ball, good finisher. He can hold the ball very well, his movements are good. I mean a top striker at the minute – and you can see he is flying.”
Every centre-back who has played against Antonio will undoubtedly agree with Zouma – Micky is a real handful.
The Hammers centre-back would have known all about the 31-year-old having played against him during his Chelsea days.
Let’s hope that Antonio causes the Tottenham defenders all sorts of problems on Sunday.
Because if he’s at his best, West Ham will have every chance of taking three points from what is an absolutely huge London derby.
