Kurt Zouma faces being dropped from the West Ham team for tonight’s game against Watford after being filmed abusing his cat in a genuinely disgusting video.
The Sun reported that the France international subjected the animal to sickening violence, kicking it across the room and then slapping it in the face.
The London Evening Standard now reports that he is expecting to be dropped from the team for the clash with the Hornets as the Hammers deliberate over which punishment to hit the ex-Chelsea star with.
He could be suspended or fined heavily but there have even been calls for him to be sacked by the club.
Zouma has issued an apology for his actions but he has been condemned by both West Ham and the RSPCA.
The Metropolitan Police will not be investigating the incident but the RSPCA have the power to prosecute individuals if they are proved to have acted illegally, and there are calls for them to launch a probe, per the report.
