KURT ZOUMA gave a two minute tactic talk to Eduardo Camavinga following Chelsea’s 2-1 win against Rennes.
The Frenchmen faced each other in Tuesday’s Champions League tie, with a 91st minute header from compatriot Olivier Giroud securing Chelsea’s place in the knockout rounds.
Kurt Zouma gave Eduardo Camavinga some tactical tips after Chelesa’s 2-1 win over Rennes
But at full-time, Zouma approached Camavinga on the field to give the 18-year-old midfielder some tips on defending.
Centre-back Zouma, 26, has been a rock at the back for the Blues this season after forming a partnership with Thiago Silva.
And he made sure to give some useful information to highly-rated Camavinga before flying back to London.

According to RMC, Zouma said: “Sometimes you have to swing when you’re behind. We do it sometimes.
“When there is pressure, you lose the ball and a goal. Every time it’s like this. It happened against PSG too.”
Indeed, should Camavinga be able to improve the defensive side of his game, he could earn a lucrative transfer next summer after catching the eye of Europe’s elite.
Manchester United are said to be huge fans of the wonderkid.
Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are also looking at Camavinga, who has already made 54 senior appearances for Rennes.
The youngster, who has also won three senior France caps, is valued at a whopping £62million by his club.
But Camavinga looks to be preparing for an exit sooner rather than later.
Reports claim he has sacked his agent in order to land a representative with higher standing in the football world.
Jorge Mendes, who represents Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale’s Jonathan Barnett and Pini Zahavi, who was behind Neymar’s world-record £200m move to PSG, are all said to be interested.
