He said of leaving Zouma: & ldquo out;It was a difficult decision. We have options in that place at this moment.

Times Kurt was Michael wasn & rsquo, or playing and Mina was on the seat;t playing some minutes.

“Zouma worked hard throughout the week. We have five, six months to play, a busy December and all them have their opportunity.

“I’ll see what will be my decisions. What we attained before Mina came into the starting XI with Kurt and Michael, and (Seamus) Coleman and Lucas (Digne) as well, that stability is actually important. They start to understand each other and they did really well.

“Last match our organisation was fantastic and also the back-line did really well, and Mina did and kept his position. I can change for several reasons. I like to get this problem. That means we’ve got quality and that I don’t have doubts.

“This rivalry between them will make them better players every day and we could develop as a club this way. ”
