Kurt Zouma’s court date for ‘kicking cat’ CONFIRMED in distraction to end of season for West Ham defender


KURT ZOUMA’S court date for ‘kicking his cat will come just SIX DAYS after West Ham hope to contest the Europa League final.

The Hammers‘ centre-back is being prosecuted after a video filmed by his younger brother Yoan went viral and shocked viewers on social media.

French defender Kurt Zouma is due to appear in court at the end of what could be a huge week for West Ham

Zouma Senior is due to appear before Barkingside Magistrates on May 24.

But before that the 27-year-old will be dreaming of playing in the European showpiece in Sevilla on Wednesday, May 18.

He’s currently crocked as West Ham prepare to take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the semis for the right to meet Rangers or RB Leipzig in Spain.

But boss David Moyes hopes the Frenchman could beat his ankle injury in good time for the possible season finale in Spain.

That would be one of West Ham’s biggest matches for decades.

The RSPCA decided last month to bring charges against Zouma under the Animal Welfare Act after watching home footage of a pet cat apparently being booted and slapped.

They also took both of Zouma’s cats to care for them.

He said he was ‘deeply sorry’ after the video clip of the incident in a kitchen sparked huge attention and headlines.

The Hammers fined Zouma the maximum possible of two weeks’ pay – £250,000.

But Moyes refused to drop him, leading to fans booing the former Chelsea player during matches.

Sponsors also ditched Zouma.
