France head coach Didier Deschamps set to Drop West Ham United defender Kurt Zouma

Adidas Cancels West Harm Defender, Kurt Zouma Sponsorship Deal

France head coach Didier Deschamps is planning to drop West Ham United defender @Kurt Zouma following the emergence of the video of him kicking a cat, sources have told ESPN.

Didier Deschamps in reacting to the gruesome video said:  “I was very surprised on Kurt’s part,” Deschamps said on French TV on Thursday. “It is unacceptable, intolerable, cruelty without a name. These images are shocking and intolerable.”

Since the incident, Adidas has ended its sponsorship deal with Kurt Zouma following the video footage of him kicking and slapping one of his cats. He was fined $338,763 by West Ham this morning and his two cats have been taken into care by the RSPCA, a UK animal welfare charity.

West ham coach, David Moyes during the post-match interview also spoke on his decision to play Kurt Zouma against Watford after a video surfaced Monday showing him kicking and slapping a cat.

According to him, the club will sort the other side of it out, and he will look after the football side.

Kurt Zouma’s younger brother, 23-year-old Yoan, has been suspended by his club, Dagenham and Redbridge over his cat-kicking video.

Yoan recorded his big brother punching and kicking one of his pet cats, something that has drawn sharp criticism both on, and offline.

In a statement, the club said; “Dagenham & Redbridge FC would again like to reiterate that it condemns any form of cruelty towards animals and fully understands the reaction of many of its supporters.

“The Club has therefore decided that until the RSPCA has completed its investigations, Yoan will not play for Dagenham & Redbridge in any competitive match.”

They added that “any further action deemed necessary to be taken will be made at the conclusion of the RSPCA investigation”.

His brother, Kurt has been fined £250,000 by his club West Ham and dropped by his kit supplier Adidas, and now Yoan has been suspended by his own team.”

A statement on the club website read: “Yoan was this week contacted by the RSPCA to assist in their investigation and is fully cooperating with them.

“However, Dagenham & Redbridge FC would again like to reiterate that it condemns any form of cruelty towards animals and fully understands the reaction of many of its supporters.

“The Club has therefore decided that until the RSPCA has completed its investigations, Yoan will not play for Dagenham & Redbridge in any competitive match.

“Any further action deemed necessary to be taken will be made at the conclusion of the RSPCA investigation.”

There have been calls from supporters and animal activists for the elder Zouma brother to be prosecuted for the incident, with thousands signing a petition and some calling for him to lose his job.
