Zouma’s house broken into


As revealed by Claret and Hugh yesterday after the game against Palace, Kurt Zouma was absent from the game for personal reasons. And the club has now revealed on the official site that Zouma’s house was broken into on the eve of the match leaving the central defender devastated.

Thankfully, nobody was harmed but the burglars staged a robbery which saw a collection of highly important and significant items stolen.

The Hammers captain found it impossible to play against Palace such was his emotional condition and it can only be hoped he has recovered sufficiently to play a part in Thursday’s game against the Spuds.

The club is now playing an important role which will hopefully see the stolen items recovered by offering a £25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and successful prosecution of burglars after the loss and trauma experienced by Kurt, his wife and their young family

Joint-Chair David Sullivan has encouraged anyone with information relating to the identity of the burglars to come forward.
