Zakuani has a strong pedigree, having played in Arsenal's youth academy before going on to win the men's collegiate Player of the Year award at Akron in 2007. Unfortunately, he does not have a particularly strong tibia and fibula. In April 2011, a challenge from the Colorado Rapids' Brian Mullan cleanly broke both bones, knocking Zakuani out for the remainder of the season. He returned to action last July, about 15 months after the injury, and now finds himself back in the first 11 for the Sounders.
