On Monday night, a video of Zouma abusing his cat, kicking and slapping it in front of his young child, went viral on social media after it was posted on Snapchat by his brother.

There was wide condemnation by fans and even West Ham came out against the player, but just hours after their statement the centre back started against Watford, to the anger of many.

David Moyes came in for criticism for picking the former Chelsea defender but most of the annoyance has been at the player, with even UFC legend Michael Bisping joining in.

Some fans of the club have however backed the club and the play and, ahead of the game against Leicester City on Sunday, some fans sang a song in support of the 27-year-old whilst throwing and kicking an inflatable cat.

One reply said, "West Ham fans are a disgusting breed!"

Another commented, "Just not right is it. Hope he goes to jail."

A third said, "It’s hardly a song is it, f*****g brain dead c***s dead happy with themselves."

An American Tottenham Hotspur fan, up early on a Sunday to watch his side fall 2-0 down against Wolves, added, "This is more embarrassing than Spurs first half this morning, and that’s saying something."

Despite general condemnation in football, and the fact that Zouma and West Ham have both lost sponsors in the past week, West Ham fans have started to support the French defender.

The Hammers are still battling to finish inside the top four in the Premier League this season, and are already in the box seat ahead of playing Leicester.

Zouma will start in the game, with Moyes defending his decision during the week because the defender is one of his best players, as the hunt a place in next season's Champions League.
