Kurt Zouma was removed from his side’s match against Leicester City.

West Ham's

defender

Kurt Zuma

was removed from the Hammers’ lineup for their Premier League clash against

Leicester City

because he wasn’t feeling well in the warm-up. The 27-year-old center-back was already in the headlight with the controversial footage that had been seen from him on social media, which showed him while he was slapping and kicking a cat, but all this criticism didn’t convince

David Moyes

to leave him out of his squad in their trip to King Power Stadium.

The player’s absence was announced by the club 15 minutes before the match by the club, and

Issa Diop

was chosen instead of him.

"Issa Diop will replace Kurt Zouma in the starting XI, as he is unwell,"

West Ham wrote.

"Darren Randolph is added to the substitutes' bench."

Moyes’ decision of keeping Zuma in his starting lineup was criticized by many fans as the player had already seen some of his contracts canceled, but the high-profile manager says that he decided to give the former Chelsea player a second chance, however, the player has been reportedly suffering from some eye problems, and he couldn’t help his side despite the manager’s efforts to keep him on the pitch despite his bad behavior.
