Kurt Zouma

Age: 16

Position: CB

Club: AS Saint-Etienne

Nationality: French

Value: £1.8 million

Price tag: £12 million (patch 12.2)

Kurt Zouma’s profile in 2011 (after starting new game, patch 12.2)

 Kurt Zouma’s scouting report from Comolli of Liverpool

Kurt Zouma’s profile aged 23 in 2018

Kurt Zouma’s career history until 2018

Zouma’s profile at 16 looks promising, but at only 23 he has turned into a beast. He’s fast, strong, a great team player, good in the air and a sensational defender all round. He can be trained as a DM or RB as he is very versatile. Almost all of Zouma’s development was at Saint-Etienne with computer management, so imagine him with you managing him! His price tag is a lot for a 16 year old but is well worth a buy.

Best buy rating: 9/10

    Wow never heard of him

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton April 26, 2012

      i’ve only heard of him in th last month or so, on my saves he ussualy stayes at St-Etienne for a whilie until a big club comes in for him

  • comment avatar Darren Smith April 26, 2012

    Good find indeed Karl, I don’t think too many will have heard of this guy.

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton April 26, 2012

      thanks Darren, i don’t know why many people haven’t heard of him, he is an amzing player

      • comment avatar Darren Smith April 26, 2012

        I just a checked a couple of future saves in the old patch and it seems that Zouma wasn’t so good until patch 12.2, not in the saves I have loaded anyway, so that would explain why we haven’t seen so much of him with the latest patch been fairly fresh.

        • comment avatar Karl Deighton April 26, 2012

          i brought him in a couple of old saves (patch 12.1) and he was still a good player but not as good as the future profile above

  • comment avatar Junayd Hoque April 26, 2012

    Hi, can you tell me how to download football manager patch 12.2 and how good is Nicolas Lodiero? He was a quality player on FM 11

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton April 26, 2012

      steam automatically downloaded the patch and when i start a nw game it asks me what patch i want to use, as for Lodiero, he is a good player but there are better CMs for less money, such as Badelj, Yttergard Jenssen etc.

  • comment avatar Casey McHugh April 26, 2012

    His ratings are the exact same on my save ! I bought him last month for 40 million I agree he is a great player

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton April 26, 2012

      before i joined chelsea they brought him for 38m and he has been a vital player in my team

  • comment avatar vp April 27, 2012

    hi i bucght the original game yesterday and i saw for the first time a player naimed jairo is a spanish kid is attributes are just amazing for a kid of 17 years and its avaliable to a free contract, and i also notice that ayew have decreased in some of the attirubtes like composure among others, in your update do you have him like this ? his he still to develope well ?

  • comment avatar vp April 27, 2012

    a team with this kid and prestia as their cb, should definitly have a defense solid as a rock and hard as steel

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton April 27, 2012

      jairo looks very promising, he is not available for free you have to pay 2.5m compensation to racing. If i had a good future screenshot of him he would deserve a profile. I will ask darren if he has one

      As for ayew, i’m not sure which one you are on about but they have both had a slight atribute decrease

  • comment avatar vp April 27, 2012

    jordan ayew. Because of his composure, i just hope that it´s still grow like he did in the last update. But nice found really the kid is a beast a must have for any team

  • comment avatar Graham Clark April 28, 2012

    Help he doesn’t seem to exist in my game

  • comment avatar Dilmata April 29, 2012

    This guy Kurt is good talent. Him stats looks like these of Shakho from PSG. On 25 he will be world class, only for 38 mln. : )

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton April 29, 2012

      Graham Clark: you dont need a large database, start a new game with the french league loaded and see if he is there
      Dilmanta@ i know this sounds weird but 38m is not a lot fo Zouma, on my save hes is the best CB by far and is a leading candidate for the Ballon dor

      • comment avatar Graham Clark April 30, 2012

        Hi Karl, I will try that tonight. Was wondering whether I had the latest patch but as bought game through Stream would had thought that it would download automatically. Will also try making database bigger

        • comment avatar Karl Deighton April 30, 2012

          Ok mate, tell me how you get on

          • comment avatar Graham Clark May 1, 2012

            Hi Karl,

            Tried adding French league last night but looks like it only comes into effect from the end of my current season so will play that out and see what happens

  • comment avatar Karl Deighton May 1, 2012

    okay mate, hope it works!

    • comment avatar Graham Clark May 12, 2012

      Yep worked just like you said but profile is no where near as good as the above at aged 18. Will still buy him and see what happens

  • comment avatar Dominic May 4, 2012

    Epic player

  • comment avatar Junayd Hoque May 5, 2012

    I tried to search for him and I couldn’t find him…

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton May 13, 2012

      Graham clark, he would have missed a lot of development because he’s only just appeared on your save
      Junayd hoque, try adding the french league, it worked for graham clark

  • comment avatar Malhar Bhadbhade May 23, 2012

    wow, had seriously never heard of him..he seems to be a must-buy 16 year-old though, along with Fierro and Niang.

  • comment avatar Yayy July 15, 2012

    Wow whats with all these French talents! Sanogo, Niang, Nangis, Griezmann Zouma just to name a few. No wonder France has won the World Cup twice in a row in my save.

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 15, 2012

      You could name a lot more! They do seem to have the best young talent this year

      • comment avatar yayy July 25, 2012

        They also have extremely good regens in my save along with Argentina, Brazil, Ukraine, and various African countries.

  • comment avatar Niclas July 31, 2012

    Such a beast!! Have him and papadopulus second season with liverpool.
    Will you look at players like, Wilshere or Lukaku? Some of the best talents ia the game and real life :) imo.

    • comment avatar Karl Deighton July 31, 2012

      He is amazing, Papadoplous would be a great partner, they would be immovable.
      Everybody already knows what great talents players like that are and they are almost impossible to sign at the start

  • comment avatar Edvard Salberg August 30, 2012

    How much can you get him for in 2013 ?

  • comment avatar Darren September 23, 2012

    just got him for 4 million :) im going to rotate him and kana-biyik to partner prestia in defense

  • comment avatar Gary October 16, 2012

    i bought him for my celtic squad when the game came out for about 3-4 million and hes solid!iv also got sanogo and niang so when the inevitable happens and they want to leave i should get big money for the 3 of them
