Kurt Zouma signed in to Instagram after Chelsea’s Premier League bout with Manchester United which ended 0-0, and apologized to his France teammate Anthony Martial…for winning their duel.
The Chelsea defender saved Chelsea with a well-timed tackle on Martial as he flew down United’s left flank. Zouma posted a picture of the tackle and captioned it with an apology.
The French defender also commended Martial on his great performance.
Anthony Martial was an encouraging spark for United throughout the game as he tormented Chelsea’s experienced right-back Branislav Ivanovic. The younger man repeatedly flew past Ivanovic and his speed troubled the Serbian throughout.
Despite Martial and United hitting the post multiple times, losing a few penalty calls and dominating possession, the games ended 0-0. One suspects Chelsea will be happier with the result than Manchester United.
Ghanaian defender Baba Rahman was on the bench for Chelsea but did not enter the game.
