I think the home games towards the back end of last season really helped make his mind up, and I hope its the same for Zouma. The atmosphere generated at Goodison really is unparalleled when we are on song, and I think once you feel that as a player, it gets into your bones, and almost becomes addictive. It was evident from the moment he came here that he felt at home, and its not just his work on the pitch that has been noticeable, but also off it.
You contrast that to the pressure of the Nou Camp at Barcelona, and it is easy to see why Gomes had an easy decision to make. We need to build a squad and dressing room of these kind of characters, who are young, hungry and want to drive the club forward in the right way.
