Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, John Terry; they’ve all been a nuisance for Manchester United over the years in their own way. However, none of them top Sir Alex Ferguson’s list of players he used to hate playing against when facing off against Chelsea. That honour, perhaps surprisingly, goes to Gianfranco Zola. Ferguson told how he hated playing against Zola, but admitted he admired him, and that he used to love watching him play. High praise indeed considering the raft of talent Stamford Bridge has housed over the past decade. In other news, Kurt Zouma has openly apologised for comments he made concerning Diego Costa after Chelsea’s win over Arsenal at the weekend. Amidst much controversy, Zouma said his teammate was a ‘cheat’, but he’s now said that the message he intended was taken the wrong way as a result of English not being his first language. Cue training ground awkwardness.
