Kurt Zouma is available for West Ham’s match against Leicester on Sunday, according to manager David Moyes, despite the controversy surrounding the defender being seen on camera kicking his cat.

The RSPCA has taken custody of the 27-year-two old’s cats as they investigate the incident.

After the video of the defender surfaced, Moyes was chastised for starting Zouma against Watford on Tuesday.

“Various opinions exist on whether he should be available. We came to the conclusion that he should. That is something I stand by” Moyes stated.

The Hammers have fined Zouma the maximum sum allowed by law, with the money going to animal welfare groups.

“I don’t think a club could have acted any faster than they have right now. West Ham have performed admirably “Moyes went on to say.

“I don’t condone his conduct; they were heinous. They were evil, but we chose to play him, and we stand by our decision.

“We’ll get him some assistance. We’re doing everything we can as a club and as a squad to assist him.

“People who have had a drink-driving offense, for example, must attend lessons to learn the causes for the offense and the potential consequences.

“I believe the RSPCA will give us with some classes so Kurt may learn more about animals and how to care them.

“He’s extremely repentant. In life, you, like everyone else, need a little forgiveness now and then. He’s looking for forgiveness for a poor decision.”

The video, which was purportedly taken by Zouma’s brother Yoan, also showed him slapping his cat.

Yoan is currently with Dagenham & Redbridge, who have stated that he would not play for the team until the RSPCA inquiry is completed.

As a result of the incident, German sportswear company Adidas has terminated its contract with the Hammers player.

Experience Kissimmee, a West Ham sponsor, has also discontinued its relationship with the team, while Vitality, another Premier League club’s sponsor, has paused its relationship with the Hammers.
