Wright Phillips


It’s safe to say that Ex-Premier League winger Shaun Wright-Phillips is not a big fan of Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma after his display during the defeat to Manchester City in the league earlier this month. French international Kurt Zouma has not regained his place in the Chelsea team after that Manchester City game to suggest that Shaun Wright-Phillips was right to call him out on his performance during the Premier League clash with the Citizens at Stamford Bridge. Since that Manchester City game, Chelsea have played two Premier League matches and Kurt Zouma has started both on the bench. Blues boss Frank Lampard has preferred German national team player Antonio Rudiger in his starting XI ahead of Kurt Zouma.

Shaun Wright-Phillips played for both Chelsea and Manchester City during his football career. The ex-Three Lions of England player won the Premier League and FA Cup titles during his time at Chelsea. Shaun Wright-Phillips talked about the league game between Chelsea and Manchester City while he was on Premier League TV as he accused Kurt Zouma and his Chelsea teammates of getting bullied by the Manchester City players in the first half. He cited an example where the little figure of Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden brushed off Kurt Zouma off the ball easily in the first half which saw Chelsea concede three goals without any reply.
