West Ham manager David Moyes has revealed that cat-kicker Kurt Zouma IS available for selection this weekend against Leicester City.
Zouma has sparked outrage around the world after a video of him abusing his cat went viral on social media. Still, West Ham made the controversial decision to allow him to play on Tuesday evening.
After the uproar which followed, and Zouma having been fined a whopping £250k, you thought there’d be no way in hell they would be making the same mistake as the Hammers headed to Leicester this weekend.
You thought wrong.
David Moyes, speaking in his pre-match press conference, has confirmed that Zouma is available for selection for the game and revealed that he is going to get “help,” including classes from the RSPCA on animal welfare.
🗣 “Like drink-driving offences, most people have to go to classes and the RSPCA are going to provide him with classes”

Moyes doubling down over the decision to keep Zouma with the squad is unlikely to go down well with the animal lovers which have been left absolutely furious by the player’s actions.
You wonder why he couldn’t have just left him out of the squad for ONE GAME…
