Breaking some big team news on Twitter, journalist Kieran Gill has now shared what he knows involving West Ham United defender Kurt Zouma.
The Lowdown: RSPCA begin proceedings…
As confirmed in an official statement, the RSPCA have now begun the process of bringing a prosecution against Zouma and his brother Yoan of Dagenham & Redbridge.
This comes after West Ham’s centre-back was filmed by his sibling kicking and slapping his cats with the Frenchman later issuing a public apology for his actions.
The Irons, in response to the RSPCA’s statement, have declared their awareness of the charity’s intent – saying that Zouma is cooperating fully but declining to comment any further (via Sky).
As West Ham face off against Sevilla this evening, Gill has broken some major team news on Twitter, sharing whether David Moyes will select Zouma for their Europa League bout at the London Stadium.
The Latest: Gill shares Zouma update…
Taking to social media, Gill says that the 27-year-old is still set to start tonight despite the RSPCA statement.
“Told Kurt Zouma will still start tomorrow vs Sevilla,” he explained.
“No suspension. Not until any court proceedings are concluded, at least.”
The Verdict: Right decision by Moyes?
West Ham and Moyes have attracted widespread criticism for continuing to select Zouma after the footage emerged and will potentially attract even more with the former Chelsea star set to start against Sevilla.
It appears the Hammers boss is still set to stick by his defender amid the controversy but it remains to be seen whether this call could bring more negative press to the club.
One thing is for sure though, his presence will certainly be a boost for the other ten Hammers on the pitch tonight.
