EPL: David Moyes under fire for playing Kurt Zouma in West Ham vs Watford despite cat video

Former West Ham United player, James Collins, has lambasted the club manager, David Moyes for playing Kurt Zouma in the West Ham Premier League game against Watford on Tuesday.

The France international was filmed by his brother, Yoan, drop-kicking, chasing and slapping his pet Cat Bengal.

And despite calls for the player to be banished or sacked by the club, the 27-year-old was named in the Hammers’ starting XI for their home match against the Hornets on Tuesday.

Moyes has explained that the decision to play Zouma was not influenced by the video of the player abusing his cat.

Collins berated the manager for allowing the France international play despite the saga.

“I think there is a lot of anger about [Kurt Zouma being picked to play] and rightly so,” Collins said, according to Metro.

“It’s a big call from the football club, I personally don’t think it is the right call.
I don’t think the club should have made him available for the game.

“I think there should be some sort of sanction against him. It’s a huge call from the club but in my opinion they have got it wrong,” he said.
