Chelsea defender Zouma gave pep-talk to Rennes whizkid Camavinga after draw

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma gave a two minute pep talk to Rennes whizkid Edouardo Camavinga when the two teams faced off in the UEFA Champions League.

The Blues emerged from the game with all three points, winning 2-1 in France.

Camavinga is highly rated and is being linked to a host of big clubs, including Real Madrid.

Zouma had some words of wisdom for the 18-year-old postgame, speaking about the tactical reasons for Chelsea's two goals on the counter.

"Sometimes you have to swing when you're behind," Zouma told Camavinga at the end of the game, according to RMC Sport.

"We do it sometimes.

"When there is pressure, you lose the ball and a goal. Evert time it's like this! It happened against PSG too."
