West Ham defender Kurt Zouma is set to appear in court on May 24 after being prosecuted by the RSPCA for slapping and kicking his pet cats.
The former Chelsea defender was captured on video by his younger brother Yoan kicking and chasing their pet cat, and the footage went viral and caused an uproar in early February.
Following the incident, Zouma had his cats seized by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA). Both Kurt and Yoan, who plays for English National League side Dagenham and Redbridge, have been prosecuted under the Animal Welfare Act.
Zouma will appear before a Barkingside Magistrates just six days after this season’s Europa League final.
The Hammers face German side Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-final, with the first leg taking place at the London Stadium on Thursday, April 28 before the second leg on May 5.
