​Wimmer reveals Stoke teammates persuaded Zouma to play against Huddersfileld

Stoke City defender Kevin Wimmer has revealed that teammates persuaded defender Kurt Zouma to soldier on against Huddersfield Town.

City had to battle hard in order to earn a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town on Boxing Day.

Wimmer has revealed that his teammates urged Zouma to finish the game despite the Frenchman picking up a hamstring problem.

Wimmer said: "Kurt was struggling but we said, 'Keep going you can't play in the Chelsea game anyway! You have a few days off to rest! We need you.'

"He was doing very well, struggling a little bit, had quite a bit of pain but I think he did very well."
