MUTV commentator's brutal Kurt Zouma put-down goes viral after Man Utd beat West Ham

MUTV commentator's brutal Kurt Zouma put-down goes viral after Man Utd beat West Ham

Kurt Zouma was rinsed by a commentator on MUTV in West Ham's 3-0 defeat to Manchester United.

Kurt Zouma was on the receiving end of a brutal put-down from an MUTV commentator in West Ham's 3-0 defeat to Manchester United.

United claimed a third straight win courtesy of a brace from Alejandro Garnacho and a strike from Rasmus Hojlund, who continued his fine form in front of goal of late.

But there was a shock jibe from the commentator on United's TV channel, aimed at West Ham defender Zouma.

After being caught in the face by Hojlund, fans at Old Trafford taunted him with chants of "That’s how your cat feels" - referencing the video of him slapping and kicking his feline.

Zouma was sentenced to 180 hours of community service after admitting two counts of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal.

But the biggest jibe actually came from Steve Bower, who has been a regular on Match of the Day over the years.

At the end of the first half, Zouma was involved in an incident with his own goalkeeper Alphonse Areola - accidentally catching him in the head.

The Frenchman had to be replaced by substitute goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski at half-time.

But while describing the action for MUTV, Bower brought up the cat controversy.

As per Metro, Bower said: "He can be physical, Zouma. Just ask his cat."

Zouma was also banned from keeping or caring for cats for five years, as well as being fined by West Ham and ordered to pay court costs totalling £9,000.

Issuing an apology, he told the club's official website in November 2022: "It’s been a difficult spell for me and my family. Obviously I have done something very bad and I apologise again for what I’ve done.

"I know it was very tough for people to watch and to see that and obviously I feel very, very sorry.

“I have great remorse about it and now I’m trying to move on with my family and looking ahead. I learned from it, that’s the most important thing, I would say. Obviously, I had support from many, many people around me who helped me stay focused on football and I try to stay happy."
