Everton legend and most successful captain in the club’s history, Kevin Ratcliffe, says that Kurt Zouma can emulate Sylvain Distin and become a great asset to the club.
Distin had – to put it kindly – mixed fortunes in an Everton shirt, with flashes of excellence bullet-pointed by howlers and arguments with Everton fans.
Zouma will be hoping to show more of the brilliance and endure far fewer mistakes.
Ratcliffe said, “He certainly looks like the Sylvain Distin kind of figure, who I thought was brilliant for the club.
“I thought Distin was a tremendous asset for us, and if he did have a bad game he made sure the next one wasn’t.
“His performance levels were really consistent and if Zouma’s anything like that then it’ll be great.
“He’s got the same kind of stature and he’s definitely no slouch – you’re definitely thinking he’s already come in and improved the side.”
