Episode 53 – Zac Djellab

Start listening

The United Mates Keitel and Joe are joined by Football Daily YouTuber and Chelsea FC Presenter Zac Djellab to discuss football content creation, Chelsea and the Euros.

Icebreaker:

In the spirit of YouTubers like Logan Paul and KSI fighting it out in the boxing ring over the last few years, the group each name who they would challenge.

On Zac’s Chelsea Fandom and Football Content Creation:

Growing up Zac played as a centre-back and began supporting Chelsea because of his footballing idol at the time John Terry. Since becoming a fan, Zac has witnessed a lot of success at Stamford Bridge and these days he gets to work closely with the club and the players in his role as a presenter for Chelsea Football Club.

Outside of his work for Chelsea, Zac is a member of the hugely popular Football Daily YouTube channel and has also appeared on Sky Sports. Down the years at Football Daily, Zac has gone from zero experience in the world of content creation to starring in and producing videos that have amassed millions of views and earned the channel nearly 2 million subscribers.

Multi-Talented Footballers Game:

Inspired by a video from Zac’s personal YouTube channel in which he faces off at Bamzooki against fellow YouTubers, Kei names footballers for Joe and Zac who have to guess which other sport they have not-so-famously excelled in outside of the beautiful game.

Zac and Chelsea:

Zac was in attendance for Chelsea’s recent Champions League final victory in Porto. From a bizarre atmosphere due to COVID, to celebrating in the press box in a “lucky” suit, to reflecting on the win afterwards with Mason Mount (or “Mason”, as Zac refers to him), Zac tells the story of his best footballing day ever. As for transfer targets, there’s one name on Zac’s list for Chelsea this summer and it’s Erling Haaland.
