West Ham United have condemned the videos of Kurt Zouma, who appears kicking and slapping his cat, and have said they will take up the matter internally.
the british tabloid The Sun uncovered some recordings in which the French defender appears kicking his cat and slapping him, as a form of entertainment.
“I want to apologize for my actions. There are no excuses for my behavior, which I sincerely regret,” Zouma said in a statement. “I also want to apologize to everyone who has seen the video. The cats are fine, safe and sound.”
“Everyone in the family loves them. This behavior was an isolated incident and will not happen again,” he added.
West Ham condemned his actions and said they have spoken with Zouma and will deal with the matter internally. “We want to make it clear that we do not condone cruelty to animals in any way,” added the Hammer club.
Zouma arrived at West Ham from Chelsea this summer, in exchange for more than 30 million euros. (D)
